Well as part of my birthday LOML got me a dovetail jig Attachment 35640to go with my new router. I was a little skepticle when I opened the present because she got it a Harbor Freight. I very rarely buy anything from them except occasionaly some clamps. My skepticism was increase when I open it up and there was no manual. One never to look a gift horse in the mouth I decided to give it a wherl. I went to their web site and sure enough I was able to download it. Before I did that i googled router jigs and found this article. armed with this information I looked around only to discover that I had no guide to fit my new Milwakee router Attachment 35642so I took a trip down to one of my local wood equiptment suppliers and picked up one that fit in the fixed base of my NEW router. I took some 1x4 pine I had laying around and took it over to the chop saw to make some test pieces. After playing around with it I decided that it was a keeper.Attachment 35641 It came standard with a 1/2 template and according to the manual they can get me the 7/16 and 9/16 templates.
Not bad for $34.95
Now I know those Neianders out there are going to look down on me for putting the dovetail saw away but I only remember what Sam Maloof said during his wookshop. You should use the tools that gets the job done a quickly as possible if you expect to make money doing building furniture.
