The Stots DoveTail TemplateMaster is a template that you use to make a template to cut dovetails.

The main things going for it are price ( $40) and essentially unlimited width capability. I used it to make dovetails for a blanket chest ( 18” deep). It also allows you to make a template you can use on a router table. I find this handy. Also, once you have a template you can reuse it as much as you want ( nothing to set up ).

On the down side. It only does thru dovetails and variable spacing is limited to a multiple of 1 inch.

BTW – Don’t let the router eat the original template you use to make your own templates.

It works as advertised. Stots.com

thx for the review, I bought one to check it out. I have a jig from peachtree woodworking, I think it is like the keller jig, so far I like it. but this template is cool.
