As some of you know I was looking for a tenoning jig, and bertha told me about the rockler one and that it is a really good jig. Now thats one positive review and there are more on rocklers website I was wondering if anyone else out there has this jig and have used it alot and what you think of it?

I’ll be watching this one :) I really wanted the JET but the Rockler’s price was right. I wish you luck.

Adam,
I have the Delta version of this jig. They look to be very similar. Mine is well made, heavy and easy to use.

I looked at the Delta and it’s highly rated. I liked the features of the JET a bit more with the quick release feature (I’m also just a JET guy). I don’t think you can go wrong with the Delta, JET, or Rockler. To tell you truth though, brother, I think you’re better off making one. If you don’t like it, you can tweak the next one. My $1 shopbuilt works just as well and there are some FINE plans here. It’s really a simple device that really doesn’t have to weigh 50 pounds to work.

I bought mine at Grizzly. I think all of them are pretty much the same, kind of like the mortise machines. I’m sure there may be higher priced ones with more bells and whistles, but most are the same. One thing I have noticed – - the price of these things has gone up and up and up since I bought mine. May be best to grab one before they price the things out of reach for most of us.

Amazon jacked my lowly Rockler a few bucks while I slept. Killed me on the JET mortiser that I had in my cart. Keep in mind my strategy: I load my cart, then start pestering the better half; once she agrees, I just checkout; it pains me to pay $100 more than yesterday but that’s where I am, gentlemen, at the mercy. Whipped, some might say. Such is life.

I have a Delta ,got ,long time ago ,paid like 65 bucks,it works just fine .
If I were looking to buy ,I would get the Griz.because,I have physically picked up and looked at quite a few of them, and as juniorjock said ,I think all of them are pretty much the same.
