I am looking for an Akeda dovetail jig. Ideally the 24” model, but the 16” might work too.
Thanks so much and happy woodworking.

I’ve got a brand new Akeda jig that I’m willing to part with. I bought it new about 4-5 years ago, cut one test joint and put it away. I’ve got the router bit set, extra fingers, manual, etc. I think it’s the 16” DC model? I’ll check if you’re interested. I’d be willing to sell or trade for decent quality hand tools.

APM I would be interested in your Akeda jig if you still have it. I know this post is a few months old but let me know if the jig is still available.
Thanks

I’m out of surplus accessories at the moment. Hopefully someone here has an extra accessory kit for sale.

I sincerely hope someone puts these fantastic jigs back into production.

I saw a few accessory sets on ebay a few weeks ago. I don’t have any extra parts for sale, but I do love the jig.

I have the 24” and can say that it’s more jig than I’ll ever need but when I got mine that was the only model that I could find. It’s an amazing tool to have only wish that I had more uses for it. Finding parts is a bit difficult now as they have since done away with the webfront but you can call them (1 877 387 6544) per http://jigstore.com/ If you want just guide fingers it’s going to be pricey as sites such as eBay or CL are going to be your only hope.

They used to have all types of parts and accessories for sale. I e-mailed them out of curiosity on some 8mm bits last week and they sent me what they have in stock (see below).

I think that I’m going to look at CMT’s european offering of bits and see what I can find that will work. I’m curious if anyone else has done a similar thing. I’m aware that Whiteside makes (or at least they did) some 1/4 shank bits for the jib but I’d prefer to go with the thicker 8mm shank if possible.

Here’s some of what the nice person had to say:

Our jigs are no longer in production. The company is presently dormant.

Kevan Lear, the owner/designer of the AKEDA line of products, is now in his 70s. He has been looking to find someone to take over the manufacturing, sales and distribution of AKEDA’s products. Finding either the right partner or someone to acquire the company is taking time.

If you wish to place an order for items in stock, please send us a list of the items you want and your shipping address. We will create an order/invoice for the items in stock and email it to you for your confirmation. We use PayPal for payment.

Please list the back ordered items you want and we will place you on our back order list and send you an email when the items are in stock. We don’t have an eta on the back orders.

Whiteside makes bits for the Akeda as well. I recently purchased a box joint bit with 1/4” shank from Whiteside. The asymmetrical box joints you can make on the Akeda are really good looking. I’ve never seen a simpler or better system for making box joints, it’s just really, really slick. I plan on making some videos making box joints on the Akeda, in my ongoing crusade to bring back the Akeda jig.
