Does anyone have experience with the dowelmax jig? I’ve read mostly positive comments
but I would like to hear from experienced users. I anticipate using it on chair rails that have compound angles. Up to now I have been cutting angled tenons,which are time consuming. I would only try the dowelmax if there weren’t joint strengh issues. thanks for any help you may provide. tom

Tom, I don’t know this product, but am familiar with the Joint Genie. I have use the Joint Genie for awhile and have found it a precision tool for dowel joints. Because you mention ‘angled tenons’, I thought that you might want to at least look at this tool.

There is not much info on the web site expect for the rather extensive brochure which is a PDF file. Make sure that you read it.
