Took a Harbor Freight run in Hempstead, NY and in Harrisburg, PA. Bought a big pile of stuff.

Finally found a HF with the Dovertail jig. $34 seems like a great deal. I’m sure it’s not a perfect jig, but hopefully it will be worthwhile.

check out http://www.routerforums.com/ and do a search for harbor freight dovetail jig, a guy named bobj3 has posted all kinds of good info on how to get them working well

couple minor tweeks and they work just as good as the similar higher dollar jigs

@Mike – Thank you. Looks like some simple bracketing and this jig will be as good as the big boys. Hey, for $33 it’s hard to beat. I like the cam lever mechanism. Quick release is what it’s all about.
