I have a craftsman dovetail jig that I can get for $20. It is model number 315.25790. here is a picture. It seems like a fairly old model but if it is a decent jig I am happy to spend time working with it. Any opinions? Thanks in advance.

That looks alot like one I had bought at a garage / tool sale many years ago.

I never did use it and gave it away.

I think I paid more than $20.00, this one might be worth a try, not like you are putting out big bucks for it.
A few bits and it just might do what you want it to.

I will check, I might still have a little orange plastic box full of 1/4” craftsman bits that I bought about 25 years ago, mostly carbide. I will give them to you if you want to pay the postage.
