A precision extruded aluminium body, with non-marring textured clamping surfaces and machined-in side stops adds rigidity and accuracy. Supplied with three robust 8mm diameter shank cutters for chatter free routing; the e7 eliptical guide bush which fits many routers; some routers may require a different guide bush and/or adaptor.

"Today I decided to take my new Leigh D4R Jig out for a test drive. All I can say is WOW! The booklet of instructions is great. This Jig is so easy to use and simple to set up. It is very well made. I tip my hat to you. Job well done. My first attempt at the Thru DT came out OK, (I had my ins and outs mixed up) but still good. I realized my mistake and made another. It came out perfect. Thanks Leigh." — Robert Domulevicz, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
"The key to the Leigh design is the sliding template fingers, which allow beautiful dovetail configurations to be arranged by eye, with the fingers always locking down level and straight." Fine Woodworking Magazine
