Rated 4 out of 5 by from dovetail jig Excellent intro to dovetail joints; once the calculations are made, set up and operation are straightforward. Unfortunately the template is very fragile and spares should be available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for it's purpose. After reading the reviews i decided to buy one, I wasn't expecting much and knew it would be time consuming to set up but after trying it I'm convinced those good reviews below are either screwfix staff or people so arrogant they want us to think they are so clever they got it to work. After several hours of constant adjustment and cutting trial joints I realised the template was moving as I cut, it doesn't matter how tight you lock it, it's just too badly made. Threads are so loose the handles vibrate loose and there's so much slack that any adjustments you make will be lost the second you touch anything. The cam lock moves the wood out of position when u tighten, more to the point - the template is actually fixed to the cam which moved side to side by several millimetres. I've been a professional furniture maker for 8 years and can cut dovetails more accurately than this by hand in less time. A few locating lugs would help to keep the parts at right angles and aligned but even then the cams and clamps are so poor that at almost breaking point the wood still shifts as cutting. The cutter itself wasn't even a dovetail as it had 'wings' at the bottom where it hadn't been ground properly - meaning at the bottom of every dovetail is a T-slot. Not a major issue but by the time I've bought a new cutter and spent another couple of hours setting it back up I could've just bought a trend. Don't believe those who say it only needs setting up once, once you've loosened or moved a single part everything will need resetting (or rechecking). Don't waste your money. Just buy a Trend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dovetail jig Once you have done the maths and set it up the jig is easy to use. The only downside is that the comb is plastic, not metal, so is easy to damage with the router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fabulous piece of kit After wrestling with the instructions which were horrendous for about 20 minutes i gave up with them. After figuring it out myself which was relatively quick i am confidently producing perfect joints everytime. I will be using this jig alot in the future.
