    Pros

    • Precise
    • Strong
    • Well made

    Cons

    Best Uses

    • Edge Doweling

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    I am an very novice woodworker. I used this jig to edge join some 1x pieces. I found it to be intuitive to use, and very precise. If you misalign the mark on the jig and your pencil line on the work piece even by a hair, it will affect the alignment of the pieces. I used a pencil that produced a line of the same width as the mark on the jig, and I got perfect results.

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    This product would be greatly improved if it had alignment lines on the jig that would locate the center of the holes. These could be lined up with a pencil line on the work piece so that it would become a precision tool.

    as I have 30+ years of custom woodworking experience I have used many doweling jigs(some to my displeasure)the self-centering feature, the different size bushings & ease in changing them-all add to the best doweling jig I've ever used-I'm currently using it on the building of "Heirloom quality" desk- A+ in my book

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    Killer, well-machined and sturdy tool. Extremely accurate with zero set-up time and learning curve. The centering lines that can be viewed through the opening on the side are a nice value-add for applications where the preset locations are ineffective. I am very pleased and it is well worth the money. My only wish is that I could buy a single version that has both wide capacity, and 4 tapped bushing holes.

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    This thing is made like a tank, I belive it will last for a very LONG time before it gets damaged. It is very very easy to use, and you get consistent results with it every time. I only wish it came with more 3/8" bushings, instead of 2 each of 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8", but this is only due the fact that I dont think I will ever use 1/4" nor 5/16" dowels, but on second thought, I guess its better to have the tool and dont need it, than needing it and not having it. And after all, you can buy extra bushings for cheap. Its a nice jig and would buy it again, maybe if someone stole mine, because other than that I dont belive this thing will give up anytime soon.

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    I've used this jig for cabinet building projects, and it works great every time! The construction is all solid CNC machined metal, so you know the hole will be drilled right every time. The jig fastens very securely to your work piece, and the bushings fit the drill bits perfectly. It's well worth paying a little extra to get the premium version.

    Simple and well made

    Pros

    • Strong
    • Works Effectively

    Cons

    • Limited to edge joints

    Best Uses

    • Any edge jointing

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    A simple effective jig that can have its performance improved by making a couple of shopmade items. Firstly an adjustable rod with 5/16 or 3/8 pins that fit into the last hole drilled and the last drill insert on the jig. this allows accurate positioning along a long joint. The second is a set of shims(1/16, 1/8, 1/4 & 1/2") that have hook shaped slots that fit over the guide rails of the jig. It allows joints to be offset for legs so there is more room for corner blocks or if you want to have a double row of dowells for a stronger joint. I hope TASK sees this and makes these items as an optional extra. (Dowelmax supply them as standard with their jig)

    Comments about Premium Doweling Jig :

    I used this jig in my woodworking club at school. The kids and I used this to make simple but joints for 4X6 picture frames. The only error came from moving too fast to get the project done. When time was taken, all the students were able to drill properly placed holes and in the end, the parents were jumping for joy. It works great and will be in my shop for a long time, or until it gets run over by a tank.
