Leigh Dovetail Super Jig
Leigh Super Jigs offer exceptional value. Available in 12", 18" or 24" widths for every woodworker and budget. Variably spaced, through and half-blind dovetails are standard. 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 spacer to position the fingers and offset the socket board and rout perfect finger joints. For fittings adjustments in increments of .002" can be made, the Super Jigs have the new Leigh E Bush which enables very precise adjustments for fit to be made. Twisting of the E Bush changes its active diameter which in turn changes the fit of joints and half-blind dovetails. Super Jigs are supplied with1/2" x 8° , 1/2" x 14° dovetail cutters, 5/16"straight cutter (all 8mm shank) and a 1/2" to 8mm collet reducer.
Leigh VRS Vacuum & Router Support
Revolutionary dust free Routing for a safer, cleaner workshop.
The revolutionary Leigh VRS Vacuum and Router Support, provides almost 100% dust and chip collection, as well as amazing full width router support. The VRS is a must for all Leigh Dovetail Jig owners. Available for all Super Jigs, D1600, D4R & all 24" D-series Jigs.
The router is positioned between the control arms attached to the vacuum chute below. The arms are adjustable to suit any size router base. The vacuum chute glides effortlessly from side to side on nylon rollers and automatically follows the router when routing the joint or when the router is parked off to the
side. The chute is always in the perfect position to catch the chips being thrown out by the high-speed router bit action. Chips and sawdust are drawn into the vacuum chute and down through the vacuum hose. Each VRS comes complete with two adaptors to fit all popular vacuum hose
sizes from 1" to 2.1/2". The VRS can be used with a small shop vac or large built in system.
The VRS is a full width router support. When the work piece has been routed on one side of the jig, the router can be effortlessly moved to the other side of the jig and parked while the work piece is being changed. There is no need to remove the router from the jig.
As the vacuum box is always in perfect position relative to the router bit, the dust and chips are drawn into the chute and vacuum hose.
The dust chute rides beneath the router support beam. Control arms ensure accurate positioning of the chute and the size and shape of the chute ensures total waste collection regardless of bit size or joint type being routed.
The VRS will work with almost any shop vac or large vac system. Two adaptors are included with every VRS to handle hose sizes from 1" to 2.1/2".
