I just received a new dovetail jig I ordered at a recent show. It is
called a ChestMate and appears to be manufactured by a company called
It worked great at the show. Don't know how it is going to work for
me as I have not tried it yet. It looks incredible simple and appears
to have a short learning curve. It's possible to cut dovetails of ANY
length with ANY spacing you want. It does not do half-blind.
I think it is just being introduced and wonder if anyone in this group
has tried it yet and any problems that might have been encoutnered.
I think the price was around $125.00. It's made of cast aluminum and
like almost everything else is made in China.
