The easiest dove tail jig to setup and use
Last week I received my PC 4216 ,12" Deluxe Dovetail jig Combination kit from CPO outlet .And all I can say is " I LOVE IT" First time ever doing Through Box Joints , I got the manual and follow the instructions to the T, and for the first time ever , my box Looked so perfect. Next i'll be trying miniature dove tails. This tool is amazing, so easy to set up and use, just read the manual and you will do no wrong. Don't go paying 300.00 to 400.00 bucks on a Leigh jig, With the Porter Cable 4216 jig, you get three different templates, guide bushings for the templates and two straight and two dovetail router bits, all you need is your router and you be all set to amaze your self. And all for 1/2 of the price of what you pay for the Leigh dove tail jig.CPO outlet is the only place that I shop for all my power tools. Fast shipping and reasonable price I recommend CPO outlet not just to my friends but to everyone interested in saving your hard earned money and at same time get a good quality product at a reasonable price.

Porter-cable 4216 Dove tai Jig
I have not had a chance to use it yet. Every thing came through in good shape. Very well built only thing I wish is that the lettering on the templates were in black so it would be easier to read. Plan on going to a class on how to use it properly.

Best dovetail jig on the market
I used this jig for a large batch of electric guitar amplifier cabinets and a large chest of drawers. It worked so good I bought another one so I can do half blind dovetails for drawer fronts and through dovetails for the backs.

trouble getting edges to line up
no matter how many times I've tried....I can't get the edges to match flushly when i cut the dovetail. I know I am doing it correctly so I'm assuming the indexing bar is off?

A welcome addition to my shop!
I spent a week with my new toy, and I'm thrilled with the thing! It took a few tries to get it all figured out, but most of that was my rushing ahead and not thinking my project through (and not fully reading the instructions. I suggest reading ALL of them).

This jig is well-built, handsome, and makes beautiful things with wood, just like the reviewer. LOL

There is a supplemental manual available online only, which is (bizarrely enough) nearly impossible to find on the manufacturers website. Search the Web for "porter cable dovetail jig supplemental manual" and you can get to it, though. And you won't need it for most projects anyway.

Met my expectations
Works great with my porter-cable router. My first project was making drawers with half-blind sliding dovetails, and it worked great. Set up was easy, and after a few test cuts I was off and running.
