Description

Dovetails have been crafted into woodwork for centuries, it takes years practice and skill to do dovetails quickly and accurately by hand. The Leigh dovetail jig gives this capability.

Many jigs on the market will do dovetails quickly and easily, but the Leigh jigs are in a league of their own when it comes to adjustability.

The jig uses adjustable fingers rather than a fixed comb, this allows any width timber to be used, rather than the job being planned around the jig, like many fixed comb templates.

The Leigh D4R has an impressive list of joints it can do, with the standard bits that comes with the jig, it can do through dovetails, sliding dovetails, single pass half blind dovetails, variably spaced half blind dovetails, end on end joints and finger joints in material 12mm top 20mm.

With optional accessories, more intricate and advanced joints can be done. With the use of smaller or larger bits, materials from 3mm to 31mm can be routed. No other jigs give this amount of versatility. 

An adaptor is required for the base of the router to hold the Leigh eBush. If unsure on guide bush adaptor selection, please contact our customer service team or your nearest store.

What router does Leigh recommend?

Leigh recommend a 1/2" shanked router, of at least 1000W for their dovetail jigs and the templates that go with them. 

A router with a low centre of gravity is also good, as this makes preventing tilting the router during use a lot easier. A router that is a little taller still works well, the addition of a VRS gives that extra stability. 

A plunge base router is needed for the FMT jigs due to the way the jig operates, either a plunge or fixed base router can be used for the dovetail jigs. 

If purchasing a new router, consider ergonomics, switch location, a good plunge mechanism and easy, accurate adjustment of bit height and how easy bit change is.
