Simple to set up and use, the Axcaliber Dovetail Jig is very robustly made from heavy gauge steel pressings.

The jig can be used with any router with a base diameter not exceeding 160mm that will take 1/4" shank cutters, (although lightweight models are most suitable). Fitted with the cutter supplied, the jig can be used to cut both lap and rebated lap dovetails for basic drawer construction or fitted with an optional bearing guided straight cutter, it will also produce 1/2" strong, precise comb or finger joints for tool boxes and utility furniture. Using the optional fine finger comb, the jig can be used to produce 1/4" half blind dovetails for spice drawers and jewellery boxes. A through dovetail comb is also available to further increase the range of joints possible with this versatile jig. Material capacity 275mm width 15 - 32mm thickness.
