My father-in-law is a wonderful man. He’s 80 and still working. The other day he was cleaning out a basement for a customer and ran across this Mortise and Tenon Fixture. The customer said “throw it away”. He couldn’t bear to throw it away so he passed it on to me. Honestly I’ve never used one and don’t think I ever would. Anyone out there in the Lumberjocks community have experience(good or bad) with one of these things????

My experience with craftsman jigs has not been good, but you might as well read through the manual and check it out. It looks similar to other versions such as models from Trend and Leigh’s FMT.
It might be okay for occasional use.

Craftsman made all kinds of jigs similar to that during the 1960 and 70s. I have several that I never use any more. One is for cutting rope spirals on the lathe. They work but are certainly not for any kind of production work.
