I have been very pleased with the quality of this jig. It was a little overwelming at first, but after testing and using the jig, the complexity is what gives the joints a “hand cut” look. The joints are adjustable and fit nice and tight. I hope to some day add the Isoloc templete. I would definitely recommend this jig.
