well after much thought my New Leigh FMT Pro Jig Has arrived.
Could not wait to get chopping wood. Once you understand the way its set up its a doddle to operate however precision when cutting the stock is paramount. I odered them metric jig however, regardless you get the standard 5/16In bit and the hardest thing i found was getting the fit right ” read the manual first” anyways afer securing next years firewood i sat down and read the manual and wacthed the DVD.
I had not locked the front and back limt stops clown so the fit was out. After an hour reading up i was ready to go with this bathroom cabinet. I have built a few SHaker Style radiator surrounds from thick Oak however, i could never tackle all the M&T’s to do this and now some are loose. Routing all these small Tenons for the slats was quick and easy. I was amazed how clean and accurate the cheeks were. I have more projects i was unable to construct before however i can do them now with this amazing jig. Very pricey but in the long run and if your not a craftsman with lots of time on your hands this is the jig to have.
Im looking for a forum on info site with project and setup info but cant really find any. If anybody can point me to where if any there are that would be great
