Like the simplicity of the tool. Very clean and well made. Also like the strength and security of the final product.
I like the ability to drill and set angled dowels. I’ve used it several times and will continue to explore ways to use it. It takes a bit of planning to determine where through-hole dowels will exit depending on thickness of wood, or where to set the stop if not drilling all the way through. Depending on the project, clamping can require some creativity, too. Joints are very sturdy, which is what I was after, and the oval “eyes” add an interesting look to the finished piece. One thing that would enhance the design would be to have laser-etched center lines on the ends, or even better would be to have rule marks on each side with zero at the center — that would really speed up the jig placement.
So far so good. Seems well made.
Very sturdy, well made and easy to use. The only drawback is that you. The only drawback is you can only use one size dowel.
Great product at a low price
I used the jig to join some L- shaped legs for a new assembly table. The legs got two sets of dowels each and are very strong and sturdy. It's a great, simple little jig that was very inexpensive. Recommended!
