Excellent Product
Purchased this unit to make dovetail joints in the drawers of a bathroom vanity I was building. Directions were clear and simple and with a couple of practice trys I was able to make perfect dovetail joints. Unit needs to be mounted for use but rather than bolting it down I used 2 C-clamps with good success. Mounting holes are provided if you have the spot to mount it. I am very pleased with the jig and plan on purchasing the additinal templates to do through and mini dovetails.

This is slick!
Have always wanted to add this to my workshop and now I wish I had done it years earlier. Can't believe how easy it is to use and what a great job it does. It is well constructed and nice and solid. No problem with equipment. Major problem was trying to disseminate the manual of setup directions! They definitely could be improved, especially when it comes to explaining the function and use of the clamping handles. But the tool itself is definitely worth the investment.

Does it do through dovetails?
DON on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes if you have the through dovetail template. The cheaper version only comes with the half blind template
Good luck
Does this dovetail jig come with the necessary guide bushings? Can it work with 1/4" router and router bit?
BEST ANSWER: No, the guide bushings are not included with this jig. Since 1/2" shank bits are stronger and are much less prone to deflection than the 1/4" shank bits, Porter Cable recommends that you use the 1/2" shank bits with the 4210 dovetail jigs.
What are the other templates available for this jig?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Miniature Template - 4215
Half-Blind/Sliding Dovetail Template - 4211
(4) Router Bits - 43776PC, 43743PC, 43014PC and 43777PC
(4) Template Guides - 42037, 42040, 42046 and 42054
(2) Lock Nuts - 42237
Does this product work with the Dewalt router model #618?

BEST ANSWER: any router can be used.
