I think he means the part where it says “dovetail jig” but the picture shows a tenoning jig.
The part where the seller wants $100 for a rusted tool that costs $110 new, that’s just gravy.

Don’t you find it puzzling that you’d make dovetails with a tenon jig. How do you do that!

Those look like dovetails, well, dovetail pins, to me. It’s on the internet, so It must work as claimed!

Clean and polish that up a bit and mount it on your workshop wall for a unique hanging unit for your coat/hat/keys/mug/wallet. It will outlive you and any other decor item.

Ahhh, I see now! I didn’t even look at the header!

Seems to be the CL norm around here. There is a guy that has been selling a Delta drill press mortiser for $175 for about 3 years. I’m getting so sick of seeing it because he reposts about every 3 days. As a bonus, he lives about 70 miles away from any populated area and won’t meet. I bet he’s not even a woodworker. He probably found it at a garage sale and googled “Delta mortiser” and thinks he’s in the money now!

Maybe it comes with instruction on how to use it for dovetailing… Like, mount it to your bench to hold work as you handsaw the dovetails. Nice and heavy, could make for a versitile vise!
