I think I know the jig that you have. Bought one a long time ago, and retired it when I got my current one from Lee Valley. I suggest that you do the same, if you’re serious about using chisels and planes. When I started out in business years ago, I bought cheap tools…specifically a black & decker jigsaw. It was such a bad tool, and the results were so terrible, that I just never did any jigsawing. Years later, I was at a tool show, and tried out a Bosch. That was when they required a screwdriver to change blades. It was an instant love affair, and I bought one on the spot. Now, I’m a jigsawing fool. You need the right tool for the right job…
My motto now is “buy the best, only cry once” (within reason) I still don’t own a Festool :-)
