I hope this is the best place to post this answer to a question about the set up jig I made for my Leigh FMT Jig that I received from a prior post. The video should explain how I made the set-up jig and how to use it.

Pretty interesting, who knows maybe I’m learning something just by watching even though I don’t do woodworking at least with tools.

Nice solution to your problem David. The more things you can do to help consistency, the better. It makes the project go more smoothly, and turn out better when it is finished.

Great camera angles and excellent description. You have a way of explaining this jig in a way that amazes me that it hasn’t appeared in my shop yet. Thanks for the video!

Nicely done video David. Clear shots, nice transitions. Someone would think you do this for a living…

Wow, you must cut a lot of M&T to justify such a high end jig. Last I looked, they were in the neighborhood of $800-$900. The jig seems foolproof and fast. I would consider it, but it would take a part-time WWer like me a long time to make it payoff. Very cool jig though.

Jeff -

Have to admit I did not spend that much for the jig. It is pretty much foolproof (I sure do need that aspect!) and very easy to use. I do a lot of M&T joinery. I also have a serious tool habit :-)

From the recent Shop Tour Videos I think I am on the low end of the collecting spectrum!
