I was a snob till I shopped for a quality dovetail jig
Never regreted getting the 25” LS Positioner.
I haven’t found anything negative yet, ( at first the centering and depth of cut setup cuts annoyed me but now it’s just routine, they make a centering gauge but Incra told me it wasn’t as precice)
Woodpecker table, would have made my own but for about $50 more than materials to make my own already made and flat. Also Woodpecker aluminum insert with the interchangeable rings for different bits, really a good feature!
Working on the drawers, fuctional now so I can finish the rest with the setup.

Got the idea and plans/guide from http://members.toast.net/boatguy/routerstation.htm

First try on a cornerpost double dovetail. It takes a little getting used to the system but if you replay the video while doing it you will catch on. then after that youll get the idea.

I also bought the project book, it has alot of step by step instructions with pictures and drawings, helps alot getting used to the system, neat little boxes and small items to practice with without using alot of precious wood, but very nice projects.

Some of the projects use the wooden Incra hinge, I’m going to either get the hinge plans and drill guide or the Hingecrafter (on sale at Hartville Tools $59) the plans and drill guide are $12.95. at Woodpeckers.
