I was fairly pleased with this product and give it a 3.5 rating. . It was somewhat difficult to use and with some minor changes could be greatly improved. The DVD instructions were pretty good once you watched it several times. I found it difficult to hold the boards in place when you have a lot of cuts to make. Some type of hold down fasterner would help but also would slow the process quite a bit.
What you don’t realize when you buy the jig is that you might as well and go ahead and buy a miter guide as well. You don’t want to screw this to your primary table saw of router table miter gauge. I had a small cheap one that came with my econcomy router table and used it. However the slide on the miter guage was really too short and that made it difficult to hold the board on the jig and push it through without tippin the miter guage.
This is hard to explain but the key didn’t stay in place as well as I would have liked and when all the way down didn’t have enough edge sticking up for the edge of the board to make contact with.
The first time using this was tough but I expect it to be better with experience.
