Hi all,

Does anyone have one of these or similar automatic fluting jigs? I’m looking for a quick and repeatable way of making fluted pilasters (key on repeatable because I’ll probably forget to make enough and it’ll be a long time before the project is completed).

It looks pretty simple to use? Any feedback would be great.

A friend of mine has this jig and he brought some test flutes to our Mason Dixon Picnic. He also brought the jig. It did the job well.

Looks like a nice jig and I agree with Patron you could build it but at what price.

I will be looking at one of these shortly.

Hi Jim,

Is it an automatic “sizing/spacing” one like this? If it is, I’m heading over to a book store asap!!!

(I’m still trying to figure out how this one is used tho)...

The Automatic Flute Spacing Jig is a great tool It is so simple to use and is very accurate. You can put up to 7 flutes in a board in minutes. The jig comes with 3 bushings for 1/4”, 3/8”, and 1/2” bits It is a user friendly tool. The Jig is made in the USA from anodized aluminum, with the 3 bushings made of zinc plated steel.
WoodSmith magazine will feature it in their Oct/Nov issue. The person who tested the jig said they loved it.
If you have any questions regarding my jig, my phone # is 513-451-1599, or you can e-mail me at
It sounds as though some of you may of missed it, but I am selling my jig to LumberJock members for only $25.00 plus $8.00 S&H in the USA. Shipping for overseas orders is higher, depending on where it’s going.
Some WoodCraft stores may still be selling them for $44.99 plus tax.
Every woodworker should have one. At this price, you can’t go wrong.

One of our woodworker club members made us aware of this jig. Since I plan to make some tall case cloks i wanted to try this for the side pieces. IT IS GREAT. very easy to use and very exact, just set the guides to your router table and the fk=lutes are spaced automatically. BUY IT.
