Saw this at the Harbor Freight in Grand Junction, Co. Looks like the best price available.

that is a good price. I’d buy it right now if i didn’t need variable space in a dovetail jig. i HATE the look of set spaced dovetails. Thanks for the post though.

This jig allows for any spacing you like. Here’s their site.

Love to hear about some first hand experience. I have a PorterCable jig and it is pretty str8 forward. Fixed spacing though.

Here’s another website. I haven’t purchased one, just found a good deal to pass along to those that were wanting one.

I bought one recently at Woodcraft, but have not had the time to play with it yet (new baby and evening schoolwork keeping me busy). I’ll have some time in mid-May to play with it. I’ll post a blog them.
