Couldn’t find much in the forums on this question. So created a new entry for it. If there are previous entries, let me know.
I’ve been researching dowel jigs and can’t decide between one of the basic self centering jigs or a more capable jig like a dowel max or jessem. Lee valley and woodcraft both sell the same jig that is made is usa. The jig has good reviews.
Then there is the dowel max and jessem. They implement the jig differently, but both have good reviews.
There are two features that are most important to me. First, easy setup is important.
The cost for the three varies greatly. Self centering jig $70, jessem $119-$163, dowelmax $249 – $300.
The self centering jig and jessem can be seen at veritas.
