I bought this Freud 'jig' from a car boot sale - it was only a quid so
'must be a bargain' ;-/. I was told it was a 'Router guide', which sounds
plausible, but I can't work out how it's supposed to work, and can't find
any references on t'interweb. Can anyone give an idea of how it might be
used (I'm a naive router user) or point to a link when I can learn more
Thanks a lot
It's _most_ of a dovetail jig, but it's missing the finger plates that
should bolt on the top (usually a couple of different tail sizes).
It looks like a dovetail jig...
Its got the guide former missing though by the looks of it. You can
usually get a variety of these for cutting dovetails or finger joints.
I would also guess there were supposed to be some other handles for
rotating those cam bars a quarter turn - in effect quick clamping the
work. You may be able to use it without those though just by tightening
the the knobs.
This will give you some idea how to use it:
