Has anyone made the jigs shown at this link? Opinions?
Seems like the mortise and tenons would be easier with my Bosch 1617 router. Please understand my budget is tight, so the $400+ jigs are not an option. These jigs would require $100 or so in clamps and a Whiteside bit set for tenons. I am just a hobbist looking to expand my jointery skills this winter while in shop.
Thanks in advance….

If you invest in Bill Hyltons book on using the router you will find a wealth of ideas there for about $20.00.(Ebay or Amazon)

I agree that Bill Hyltons book is one of the best and you should get it.

You could also look for a used Mortise Pal on eBay. They are $175 new. I got a new in the box “Version 1” (smaller throat) for $99 and it was worth every penny.

Shop notes had the planes for a really good one in it a couple months ago. I don’t remember exactly which issue it was in and I am not at home right now but it was one of the better shop built ones that I have seen.

Have your say...
