I should start out by saying I don’t own any dovetailing jigs, like to but the money’s not there. Having said that, even the 16” version of the Omnijig is around $400-$500 new so take that into account, especially if it’s in good condition with the accessories but pay what you can/want to.

I’d recommend looking up what normally comes standard with the jig and make sure that it’s all there. If something isn’t mention it and take the price down.

As far as it being a good jig for a beginner, because you can adjust the width yourself, I’d imagine it might be somewhat complicated BUT that’s how it is was anything new, especially a dovetail jig. Always a learning curve.

Hope that helps some, good luck with your buying (or not).
