I have to say I like the jig…so far.
I have noticed that I have to do a complete RE-tweak when switching from “through” to “half-blind”, but it is minimal and when the learning curve is mastered the whole thing comes together, with excellent fits.
I have found some info (post later) about making variable spaced, hand made “looking” dovetails with the 4212, it’s quite interesting, haven’t tried it yet, but I surely will.
Don’t loose confidence when setting up this jig…I purely followed the manual and had NO difficulties, so hang in there if your having issues,—-you tube helps too.
I found that having the vertical board spaced to perfection between the gibs makes a BIG difference…
Make sure that the template is square to the work-piece, add locking nuts to the back of the brass adjusting knurls too…
Have the horizontal board as flat as you can and make sure to NOT have a “sniped” end from the planer in there before you rout.
