I just received a catalog in the mail from MLCS. It shows their Fast Joint Precision Joinery System for making unique shaped joints. Just wondering if anyone has used this system? Good or bad, pointers etc… any input welcome. THANKS!

I mostly use half blind dovetails, so I stick with jigs that allow you to make them in one pass.

Not sure how I got on their catalog list, but I like that the catalog also shows you the profiles of their router bits, rather than just descriptions each has a nice picture of the cut the bit makes.

Anyhow, call them at 1-800-533-9298, I am sure they will send you a catalog too!

I have this item and I have used it. I have made a couple of small decorative boxes boxes with contrasting wood.

In my opinion the jig is really designed for those that make small boxes and want to offer different looking exposed joinery. For Dovetails I would use a Dove tail jig and for box Joints I would use The incra I box,

THe Jig does work as advertised, however I did find that cutting the joints with this Jig is somewhat tedious and time consuming, The woodworking shows demonstrate and promote this item heavily every year.

hope this helps
