The base is cockeyed. There's no adjustment and the steel plate comes drilled and mounted from the factory. About 3/32" difference front to back. Using this to make a mortise and tenon frame or sash will result in a crooked fit and you'll have to sand the face of your joints to make them flush. I'd rather not create shallow spots on the surface of my finished work. Woodcraft gladly replaced my first one even though it had been several months since the purchase. Just opened up the box of the new one and it measures exactly the same. I'll spend more money on a better one or just build my own.
Length too short
It would not reach from my miter slot to the saw blade. I had to install an additional wooden face to the metal face in order to use the tool.
Excellent accessory for joinery
I use this tool for its intended use, very safe to use, it's cuts set- up and cut time by 75% highly recommend tool
Lacking quality control
Had to get two of these: After waiting through six-week back order, the first one received had a cracked casting. It was replaced immediately by great customer service, second one had a badly threaded clamp that wouldn't operate. Combined parts from both to get one working unit, and it does work well now. Needed a half-inch board as a spacer on the working face to get the 3/8" tenon I needed, and with that spacer the calibration is fairly accurate on my Craftsman saw. However, now the "front-back" angle brace becomes less usable. Fit and finish are disappointing. Needs careful alignment. If you have the patience to slog through the issues, the tool appears to do what it is designed to do pretty well.
Knurled knob broke on my third cut using the jig. Customer service quickly sent a replacement knob which has held up well. Adjustments could be slightly more precise, but are adequate for my use. I now get good performance from this jig.
IMPOSSIBLE TO SWITCH TO L tilt
As previously noted on another review, the button head screws that must be repositioned for L tilt saws are so tightly inserted I could not remove them..took back to exchange but the second unit had same problem. Store service tried both and couldn't remove even one screw. Got my money back. Either make a Left Tilt option or make it possible to get the screws out.
[...]1. Following the instructions to reposition the miter guide bar for a left-tilt saw, one of the button-head screws to be removed was so tight that I almost stripped the hex socket hole.2. The two adjusting screws in the miter guide bar to remove play are loose, and don't hold their position after sliding the jig across the saw table once or twice. Time for some LokTite.3. The "positive stop 2.5mm setscrew (H)" does not provide a positive stop for the vertical work support plate. Instead, it burrows into the metal frame and prevents changing the angle of the vertical work support plate at all. It looks like the screw is oriented 90 degrees away from where it should be. Thus, there is NO positive stop at 90 degrees. >:-(4. The work support clamp screw goes through a slotted piece that is secured with a bolt having a large knob on one end. This knob came loose from the bolt when I tried to tighten it, and clamping the work piece pulled the slotted piece away from the frame! The knob just popped off! Woodcraft is sending a replacement, but the knob should have been pinned to the bolt, not pressed on. >:-(It looks like this tenoning jig will perform well once I get the replacement knob, and if I'm willing to measure for 90 degrees each time I come back from a different angle.
