Product Details

This jig kit has been specifically designed to make dowel jointing faster, simpler and with greater accuracy. Unlike conventional jigs that only allow for edge to edge jointing, with this jig you can create edge to surface joints, edge to corner joints and edge to edge joints and it features a 15mm drill guide for use with cam lock dowels.

The main body of the jig features a series of five perfectly aligned holes to accept the drilling guide bushes of either 6, 8 or 10mm. The five bushes improve drilling accuracy and alignment as you do not need to remove and reposition the jig as many times. This dowel jig is manufactured from CNC machined aircraft-grade aluminium and beautifully finished in black electro-coating.

When edge drilling the jig adjusts to suit different board thicknesses from 10mm through to 50mm. Two round bars slot through the body of the jig, allowing you to slide the jig back and forth along the edge of the board to position your holes. A stop at the end of the bars enable you to transfer the hole positions for one edge to the other. When surface drilling you simply use the base of the jig and slide the drilling head to your desired position.

The jig is supplied in a purpose designed storage case with fifteen bushes 5 x 6mm, 5 x 8mm and 5 x 10mm, four drill bits 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 15mm, four drill bit depth collars and three drill hole positioners 6mm, 8mm and 10mm, C spanner and guide rods. This is a very precise, simple to use dowel jig that allows you to create dowel joints in any face of the work piece.

Unfortunately I've had mixed results with this, maybe my expectations were to high. Firstly it is a quality piece of kit, very heavy and comes in a nice case, although can only be stored it in disassembled. I have two issues with it however, firstly the center lines on each side that are to mark the dowel center line, one side was slightly off on mine, which is fine, scribe a new one with a square, now have a center line and to be honest you shouldn't need that center as you set the width from the edge that you want to have the center of the dowels at, but this is where the real problem occurs, the bottom edge runs in two vertical slots and underneath are a set of interlocking jaws that seat the two pieces together, on mine as soon as I tighten the locking screws the jaw moves off square, which means you can only use one of the holes, rather than a 2 or 3 as they have a slight run out. I have found that adding washers under the brass locking screws (they aren't plastic as pictured above) prevents some of the movement, I can only assume this prevents the chamfer on the brass screw from engaging the slot slightly, which may be adding to the movement. I then make sure I use the same hole all the way on the piece.
There are positives and some very nice features. It is excellent for clamping to large boards, the ability to transpose dowel locations using the slots at the top is very useful and the ability to preset the distance between a row of holes is also very nice. I think I will probably purchase the self centering jig for using on board ends and then this jig for everything else. Also to be fair Rutlands support have been very good throughout, but the runout on the face is within the manufacturing tolerances, so apart from refunding me some money there isn't much else they can do

This is one of those things that impresses on first sight and makes you wonder about the mind that thought of it. I couldn't wait to use it so I assembled it to test, well impressed with build quality and precision. Very easy to set, versatile and has several smart and very useful features.
Comes in hdpe tool case however it has to be stored disassembled, which isn't an issue as its very easy to set, I actually prefer to store it flat in the case.
Delivery to Ireland very quick, Rutlands say 5 days I got my package in 2 working days.

massive bit of kit, impressed with the build quality and design of everything, used it for a cabinet and shelving project and made life incredibly easy for me, neat accurate holes every time

Russell Love

Arrived very fast. Looks to be same good quality as other rutlands items. It's made of a heavy duty aluminium and feels strong, the drill bits are better than I expected too

Peter Carter

Previously used a plastic body dowel jig and it kept flexing resulting in the matching dowel holes being fractionally out of line. The advantage of this jig is that you have five bushes all of the same diameter on one block. So the risk of the holes not being aligned is gone. Very nicely finished and supplied in a storage case with everything included.

Tim Spalding

I have used the jig on two projects to date. So far I am very impressed. It is very well made from aluminium and the drill bits are sharp and leave a clean sided hole that snuggly accepts my dowels. It's great for dowelling on a large flat boards as you simply unscrew the drilling face of the jig, clamp to the board and drill. What I really like though is the red location pegs that you put into your previously drill hole. This acts as a stop and prevents the jig from wandering when drilling. It's a quality jig.
