Well, I finally got the jig set up with the usual amount of head
scratching. I thought that the 8 mm collet reducer was missing, so that
made for a 25 mile trip to the not-so-local Rockler shop. Discovered it

two routers, so needed to run to HF for the 7/16 bushing and then back
to Rockler for another collet reducer, at which time I discovered a 50%
off sale, so managed to kill 45 minutes browsing.
Finally ran a test for through dovetails. A little more tearout than I
anticipated and the joint was way too tight. Brought out the mallet and
still couldn't get it to fit. Then I recalled the directions offered
some adjustments for just that circumstance. Could not pry the joint
apart (it really was tight), so I decided it was time for a break and
I'll attack this again tomorrow.
Bottom line: I am encouraged. I hope to avoid Rockler tomorrow. By the
way, I picked up two Kreg hold downs and a bag of glue brushes for half
