Topic tags/keywords: jig question resource

Has anyone been to the woodworking shows this year? I was wondering if Leigh has a booth or display. I am really interesed in their dovetail jigs and was hoping I could see them at the show when I go next month.

Thanks

If you go to their website they have a collection of very good videos about their various products.

I own their Super 12 dovetail jig. It’s the cheapest one they make and it costs just a little more than other higher quality jigs. Yet, it has all the great Leigh features (variable spacing and others). I highly recommend it. Frankly, I don’t see the need to step up to their more expensive jigs.

I don’t recall seeing them at the Baltimore show this past weekend but that doesn’t mean they weren’t there. If you’re coming to Columbus, swing by the booth and I’ll show you how to cut them by hand so you don’t need to buy a jig.
