Woodworkers who prefer to use their routers mounted in a table will love the Leigh RTJ400. Unlike traditional dovetail jigs, the RTJ400 slides along the top of your router table, encouraging a comfortable upright posture, and eliminating the need to balance your router on the top of a narrow jig. It provides fast, accurate routing of through dovetails, half-blind dovetails and box joints. Like other Leigh jigs, the template for the RTJ400 is precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum. Perfect joint fit is guaranteed and repeatable with the patented Leigh elliptical guide bushing. NOTE:Operation requires a 1-3/8'' Porter-Cable style insert ring to fit the Leigh eBush to your router table or router plate. Lets you create 5 sizes of through dovetails, 4 sizes of half-pitch through dovetails, 3 sizes of single pass half-blind dovetails, and 4 sizes of box joints (finger joints)Also capable of routing angled dovetails and end-on-end dovetails (splices), both straight and angledMakes precise joinery easy-just center the board on the template and guide the jig across the router table to rout the jointsOne template makes all three types of joineryIncludes clearly illustrated, step-by-step user guide and a DVD with helpful how-to videos
Dowelmax Classic is a highly versatile and adjustable dowel joinery system that enables the creation of perfect joints that can be completed in as little as 5 minutes, and that are independently destructive test proven to be stronger than comparable mortise and tenon joints.The system creates quick, easy accurate and strong joints using 3/8" dowels in virtually any configuration that can be flush, offset, mitered, face type, t-type, double or triple row, and of any length or thickness. The standard clamping capacity for work piece thickness is 4 inches which can be expanded to any width by detaching the clamp bracket and using an external clamp.No measuring is required; simply place check marks on the work pieces to be joined, then align the end of Dowelmax with the end of the first work piece so that the check marks on the Dowelmax correspond with the check marks on the work piece. Then drill, and repeat the process for the second work piece.Perfect alignment of all joints is guaranteed because the precise spacing and alignment of the five precision machined drill guides is maintained exactly the same for both work pieces. The design of Dowelmax, coupled with rigorously maintained manufacturing tolerances, ensure that the system is accurate and repeatable from work piece to work piece, and through any adjustment. For even greater functionality, add the optional 1/4" drill guide package for use with 1/2" and 5/8" stock. With 1" thick work pieces, use a 1/8" spacer plate (also included with the 1/4" drill guide package).Technical Details:Components are made of top quality aluminum, brass, and hardened steelPrecision-machined to a tolerance of 0.002"3.2 lbs (1.45 kg)

Finding an effective jig or fixture for a woodworking operation can be as elusive and time-consuming as designing a great piece of furniture, a sailboat, or a ukulele. It takes solid woodworking knowledge and some problem-solving skills, with a good dose of inspiration thrown in. Even a moderately complex setup can pose numerous choices: What tool or machine is best for the operation? Should the jig move the wood over the machine or guide the machine past the wood? How does the workpiece need to be referenced and clamped? Should the jig be adjustable? Most of the woodworkers I’ve met delight in solving challenging jigging problems. But tackling these problems requires a basic understanding of jig function and design. This book will teach you how to make these time saving devices and help improve everything you build in your shop. 272 pages. Contents: Section 1: Function and Design Why Use Jigs?
