Looking for an Akeda dovetail jig of any size. If you have one without too many miles on it please let me know.

There is one on Ebay right now. I think it is brand new in a box.
I bought one from a fellow LJ member, and I must say it is the real deal. I was making through dovetails last night and it is dead simple to use. Plus the dust collection keeps things really clean.
My Leigh jig just sits, but the Akeda gets used.

Thanks Pinto. I saw that one and I’m watching it. I emailed the seller and the auction is just the bare bones unit; no bits, no attachments etc.

Accessory kits may still be available through the jig store.

There is one in Elkhart, IN CL as well. http://southbend.craigslist.org/tls/5195139554.html Asking $400 OBO (USD). I’ve been tempted to call…but have resisted to this point.

That’s the same listing as the one in Holland, Michigan greenacres2. I’ve already been in contact. It looks like we’ve made a deal we’re just working out shipping arrangement, costs etc. I’ll keep you all posted.

I have a DC-16 Akeda dovetail jig and the 64 piece accessories kit that I would like to sell. I bought the set several years ago from Woodcraft, it’s brand new in the box never used.

Hi Charlie,
I’m looking for an Akeda DC-16 for my husband for his birthday. If you haven’t already sold yours I would be very interested.

Have your say...
