I’m looking at the Porter Cable and/or Rockler dovetail jig. I see these both come with an insert for your router base to act as a guide within the provided templates. What I cannot seem to find though, is what routers those guides they give you fit.
I have an older Rigid router. I bout it probably 8 years ago at Home Depot. Came with a plunge and fixed base. I can get the model number when I am back home if needed. How can I tell if either of these jigs will work with my router? I downloaded both manuals, but it doesn’t give dimensions for the guide plates or a list of what routers they work with.
Anyone here able to help? I would like to get one of these jigs for father’s day, but if it means having to get a new router too then it won’t work out.
