Been looking at dovetail jigs - I have a peice to make which will need to have Dovetail joints on the visable corners. Rather more than I wish to spend cutting out by hand but as this is the first peice needing dovetail joints in some years I'm contemplating buy a jig. I'm not keen to spend lots (Trend, etc) on one but happy to buy one of the 'Lumberjack' or 'SIP' varity. Any thoughts?

I can see the way you are thinking, I was the same, when i needed a jig

I was reluctant to spend a vast sum of money on the best, my cheapo jig

worked o/k but there are drawbacks to the more primitive jogs, as I found

out. They are more difficult to set up and use, but as it is probably a one off,

go for it, I did and you very soon get used to the us eof it.
