Is there such thing as a 1/4'' diameter pattern bit for box joints on the dovetail jig?

I figure if your bearing rides against the jig, you should get perfect box joints every time. The only problem is I can’t find a pattern bit with a diameter smaller than a 1/2 inch.

You can use a straight bit and a bushing guide on your router. The dovetail jigs instruction manual will tell you what size bit to use.
