Quick question: Can anyone point me at a decent VIDEO tutorial on using a P.C. dovetail jig? I’m looking for the basic setup and use.

Sometime I hate YouTube. It’s search engine stinks and it shows you everything BUT what you are looking for.

Thanks!

Did you find what you are looking for? I have the video for the Omnijig 24”.

Send me a message, perhaps I can get a copy made for you.

Thanks guys. For some reason Im having a bit of trouble accessin the PC site (ISP?), but the SASmith’s video fits the bill. Thanks!

(though I gotta say, was the videographer stoned when they shot it? He/she can’t move from point A to point B with any speed to save thier life! :)

rpalm. Those videos are nice to get an idea on what the jig can do, but none are straight forward, detailed “HOW TO” videos. I’ve emailed PC in the hope of getting more.

Jusfine. Isn’t the omnijig a lot different from the 4212?

I am having a bit of trouble locating a copy of the porter cable 24 inch omni jig set up video if anyone has one I would be glad to pay for a copy either on video cassette of dvd. Any help would be great. Either email me at doug.purkey@yahoo.com or through this site. Thanks
