I’m thinking about buying a dovetail jig and I’m liking the Leigh D4R and the Super 24. It’s looking like I can pick up the Super 24 with the accessory kit which includes the vacuum/router support and a 7 piece bit set for the same price as the D4R without the accessory kit. I’m not starving for router bits and it looks like both jigs come standard with enough bits and bushings to make them work anyway. So the only real benefit that I see to the Super 24 with accessories over the D4R without them would be the vacuum & router support.
Anybody have any thoughts on the differences/comparison between these two jigs? If it were your money what would you do?
I’m considering this for a secific project that I would like to work dovetails into. The pieces that will be dovetailed are 19” so it’s pretty much a 24” jig or nothing and the project is big enough that I’m not going to attempt it without a jig. I’ll certainly find enough future uses for it so that it’s not wasted money. But then again I could always use a different style of jonery and save the jig for another day.
All opinions are welcome.
