jigs. I cannot have a router table, as space is SEVERELY limited! I have
seen Dovetail jigs on the market, but these are approx. £70 - too much for
me. Are there any "build it yourself" jigs that are worth having, for doing
In that price range, only thing is the Stots Dovetail Master. It is a little

sure you can. you just can't have it set up all of the time. use your
workmate for the base and make a top that you can slide between your

lots of them. routers get useful, really useful when you start using
them with jigs. most of the router jigs I use are built for the job at

build them quickly and cheaply. (note that quickly and cheaply does
not include sloppily- accuracy is most important here...)
