    Question Leigh DT jig?

    Finally got enough time at home to work on getting the roof on the shop. What I am in need of is a new dt jig. My old one is going on 4 yrs old and not very accurate anymore. Any thoughts on the Leigh 18 model. Anyone have experince with this one or others of the same quality? Have a few small projects coming up soon and need to find one.

    The plate is worn and the clamp bar no longer hold the peices as tight as is should. I already added sandpaper on it trying to help with the holding strength, which it did at first. It is just needs more parts then its worth.

    I only have experience with the Leigh super 18" as that is what I have. No comparison with others, it was a little fussy to set up at first but once learned not much problem. It makes good tails and yes I would purchase again
