12" Dovetail Jig is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well it works... The instructions for setting up the jig were a bit of a nightmare and took several readings to make any sense at all. However, once I'd done so, the jig was fairly straightforward to set up with the help of a decent steel rule and square. Getting the stops square and with the correct offset is critical - having read the reviews for this product I removed their screws completely and added a few drops of thread-lock. I did the same for the cam handles and added a engineering spring washer to each the four locking screws to avoid them shaking loose due to the router vibration through the jig. Once this was done, I followed the formula for setting the stop bar, carefully measured the cutter depth and fitted the test pieces. I found that the comb was liable to move slightly if I applied too much pressure to the template comb with the router but quickly learnt to let the router do the work with minimal pressure. After the first piece I had to adjust the stops fractionally to get perfect alignment and adjust the depth of the cutter by a further 0.5mm as the first set of dovetails were a tiny bit tight. All in all, after a slightly laborious set-up process, the jig allowed me to produce a set of perfectly aligned dovetails at the third attempt and all subsequent uses have been spot-on. One slight downside is that the cutter supplied in the kit isn't of particularly good quality and I'd advise replacing it with a better one straightaway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice dovetail jig value Good value for the money, well made and if you follow the instructions you can’t go wrong. Comes with a router guide plate and dovetail router bit. The plate is for a trend router but unfortunately did not fit my Bosch, however I ordered the 7/16” bush I needed from Amazon. ( Start stocking Bosch router guide plates Screwfix) Check that you can get a 7/16” (12mm) guide plate for your router.

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 1 out of 5 by from Given Up 2 of us tried to follow the instructions and some time later, huge pile of sawdust and nothing even close we both gave up (I am a DIY'er and my mate is a Carpenter by trade). Total piece of dunk

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it said in the book A well made piece of equipment, have now used it a few times, I found the setting up paperwork hard to follow, but once I got around the set up process, its a great little unit and does exactly what it says in the book. Very tight and neat dovetails will be using a lot in the near future.
