I’ve got the D4, I just don’t use it as much as I should…

I believe the D4R is just a model upgrade. from what I remember reading about the D4R the initial set-up is easier and there is some textured surfaces to make the jig grip the work piece better.

I have reviews of both the D4 and D4R at the link below with photos and details. Essentially, the newer D4R uses a CNC machined body with machined-in side stops. There are some other changes but the body is a biggy. They also added their very trick composite clamps for holding the stock.
