Product Details

This premium dovetail jig will guide you through the process of making strong, flush fitting dovetail joints with zero complication. Tackle these notoriously difficult to cut joints with complete confidence and take your woodworking projects to the next level. This kit includes everything you need to produce elegant through, half-blind, rebated half-blind dovetails and finger joints with ease. Clamp and cut both workpieces at the same time to create perfectly matching male and female dovetail cuts in one smooth operation.

Constructed from heavy gauge steel the body of this jig provides a strong, stable base that can either be clamped or screwed to your workbench. Requiring little assembly, and the minimum amount of setting up you can be producing professional quality joints in minutes. Two strong lever action clamps operate on a cam lock action to quickly and rigidly grip both the horizontal and vertical workpieces. Each clamp bar features a coarse sandpaper strip on the underside to enhance the grip and ensure that the stock does not move during routing.

Included with 2 interchangeable templates, one will produce half-blind dovetails and the other will create through dovetails and finger joints. Each template is precision CNC machined from thick aluminium for a stable platform that will not bend or flex during use. Ergonomically designed, this jig features a built in stabilising bar for you to rest your router on during use, taking the strain out of balancing your heavy router on the template.

For standard through dovetails, the thickness of the tail stock should be between 8mm to 25mm, and for the pin stock between 8mm and 19mm. For standard half-blind dovetails, stock should be between 12.7mm and 28mm in thickness. When routing standard box joints stock should be between 8mm and 28mm in thickness. The wide body of the jig will accept boards of up to 300mm in width.

This premium dovetail jig comes with a dust extraction unit, fitted to the underside of the jig with a 1-" dust extraction port. Dust and chips are gathered at the source, allowing you to work safer and more efficiently and produce a better finish on your cuts. A 2-" to 1-" dust port adaptor is included to increase the opening size to 2-" in order to connect to an existing vacuum style dust extractor. Included in this kit are a " shank straight cutting bit, a " shank dovetail bit, two locking nuts, two guide bushes and a full instructional guide. This dovetail jig has a lifetime warranty and in the event that it should fail due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge.

Anthony Wiggins

A fantastic bit of kit, I never dared venture into dovetail joinery before now due to the laborious set up needed to cut dovetails manually. This thing does practically everything for you, provided you take the time to set your wood up correctly, I spent the afternoon running test cuts and now I can make the most perfect fitting dovetails and they look fantastic. I havent actually made use of the dust extraction unit yet but its certainly a welcome feature that I'm sure I will make the most of eventually. For those who are looking for something to help them get more out of their router I would wholeheartedly recommend buying this.

Alex Briggs

This is a very comprehensive jig I can tell a lot of thought has gone into it, all I needed was my router and a small amount of patience to get everything set up correctly. I opted to clamp the jig to my bench as I didnt want to damage my table top but everything was very secure. The supplied router bits are of an excellent quality and cut very nicely into end grain, with very little cleaning up needed afterwards. Ive only used the half blind template so far but Im really impressed with the joints its produced.

John Parker

I can now make dovetails. Need I say more.

John Simpson

I have never used a dovetail jig before as they appeared to be quite a complicated tool to set up. I previously downloaded the instructions for the Leigh Jig and struggled to understand the setup procedure. However I jumped in bought this one and watched a number of videos. Two weeks later and I can make half dovetail and thro dovetail joints. The jig is very solid and there is no flexing of the template even when I use my rather heavy Trend T9. I haven't connected the extractor yet as the results have been good so far and I personally think the hose would interfere with me moving around the jig when routing. I am very pleased with the overall performance and wish I had jumped in a few years ago.

Mathew Green

I have now made six sets of through dovetail drawers in tulip wood with this jig. Set up is relatively simple albeit I tested on some scrap wood first to ensure the joints matched. Build quality is good and the templates are smooth and precise. Locking levers are powerful and the wood stays still under pressure. Overall very happy.
