The UJK Technology Dovetail Jig can be used to cut half blind dovetails for drawer construction, as well as precise comb or finger joints (up to 28mm thick material) which could be used, for example, in utility furniture. It will also cut through dovetails, (in material up to 19mm) which would be ideally suited for a project like a toolbox.
This tool is robustly made from heavy gauge, 3.5mm steel pressings and is very simple to set up and use. Fitted with cam action clamps, the workpieces are held quickly and securely while the smooth anodised finish on the 6mm thick, machined finger template ensures that both parts of the joint are cut accurately and cleanly.
The jig can be used with any router that will take 1/4", 8mm and 1/2" shank cutters. A matched pair of 1/4" shank Axcaliber cutters (7° dovetail/straight) are supplied but an additional Leigh guide bush adaptor to suit the router should be purchased separately. The jig also has a pre-set router depth adjustment knob as well as a unique stabiliser bar located in front of the comb, which provides a much greater surface area on which to bear the router base. Finger joint 1/2" (12.7mm) width, length maximum 20mm.
The UJK Dovetail Jig also incorporates a 62mm dust extraction port to aid safe and efficient operation. Supplied with 2 x 6mm thick aluminium combs, American style threaded guide bush as well as full instructions. Material capacity: 300mm width, 6–28mm dovetail thickness.

UJK Dovetail JigPurchased last week this is a sturdy little jig with some simple set up features and an easy to follow colour product guide with clear photographs.I took an hour or two to set up and become familiar with the concept involved.After some softwood trials and inevitable cock ups (turning wood round and cutting pins on alternate faces,not applying sufficient clamp pressure so that one board moved whilst being cut-you get the idea.....) it was time to get serious.A few hours later and a collection of Cherry,Oak and Tulipwood boxes are ready for lids and hinges.
