Available in 12", 18" or 24" widths for every woodworker and budget, Leigh Super Jigs offer exceptional value. Variably spaced, through dovetails, half-blind dovetails and box joints are all possible. The infinitely adjustable one piece fingers are easily positioned for any joint pattern and you are always guaranteed a half pin at each edge of the joint, regardless of board width. Install the included cross cut fence, and the dovetail finger assembly becomes a sliding dovetail template. For fast production you can rout half-blind pin boards and tail boards at the same time! The finger assembly produces two sizes of box joints, 5/16" and 5/8". Use the supplied spacer to position the fingers and offset the socket board and rout perfect joints. Super Jigs include the unique Leigh e7 guide bush which enables very precise adjustments of joint fit to box joints and sliding dovetails. Also includes: 8° and 14° dovetail cutters, 5/16" diameter straight cutter (all 8mm shank), comprehensive user guide, instructional DVD, cam action material clamps, guide bars for cutting sliding dovetails and mounting hardware. Please note: Leigh dovetail jig design is based on the imperial system of measurement but adjustment scales are available in either metric or imperial versions, the metric scales showing imperial equivalents,12.7mm, 9.5mm etc.
N.B. The addition of an adaptor for threaded guide bushes will be necessary for most UK routers. To help you select the correct guide bush system, please download the User Manual which contains a selection chart.

Not awesomeMy super jig IS awesome. The terrible router insert is the problem. It is over half a millimetre off centre (0.67mm). Not what you want. I'd like to think that I could return it for a better cast aluminium router insert but I don't have the time and I'm positive it won't make a difference. The best I can do is spend half an hour each time I set it up trying to centre it as best I can. I'd like to say try another jig but it is a great one if your router insert is centred.

dovetails par excellenceNot having cut dovetails since I was a young lad at school (by hand and not being very good at it) I was a little bit apprehensive at spending so much money on a jig to do it for me. Well after very carefully reading the manual (which is very good) and taking my time at setting it up I took it out to my workshop to have a go, well after only two test joints I was producing dovetails to perfection. No fancy measuring just set the fingers on the end of the wood as per the instructions and away you go, I am now one very happy old woodworker.

lovely dovetailsI have used the super 24 for some months now and my smile gets bigger and bigger, perfect dovetails every time and the e-bush is fantastic when it comes to adjusting the tightness of the dovetails. Building old fashioned drawers with variably spaced dovetails really gives them that "beginning of the century look" Highly recommended jig for dovetail fanatics!
