Topic tags/keywords: router template jig extrusion festool trend

Hi all,

I came across this the other day:*VARIJIG/3/28/varijigsystemadjustable_frame.html

And it looked like a fairly similar idea to Festool’s MFS router templates.

A little background:

I frequently make router templates out of plywood using pocket hole joinery, only to either toss them or re-make them into a different size for the next task. I’d love something precise, reusable, and rapidly deployable. I am not a festool user, nor do I plan to be—as I’m well invested in other brands of tools.

If anyone has any recommendations on the varijig product, or another similar setup—or could educate me on a better way, I’d appreciate it.

I do own the dewalt track saw and router series—it works well for dadoes, but for square plunge applications—I’m dying for a solution.
