I've been intriqued by this new jig and looked one over and really liked
what I saw. Since someone was already interested in my old 4112, I sold it
and bought the 4212 looking forward to through and sliding dovetails.
Got the box home and really like the bulk of it but there are some things I
should clear up of which I was mistaken in my assumptions. The through
dovetail template is fixed, not adjustable. However the worst thing and the
thing that really ticks me off is it calls for a 17/32" 7 degree dovetail
bit. While one came with it, it looks like it's propretary and I'm stuck
with PC bits - when they finally distribute them.
The half blind template is based a 3/4" guide bushing as opposed to the 5/8"
of the 4112. I tried a 1/2" x 1/2" 8 degree and my old 14 degree 1/2 bit.
Neither worked. I wont take it back because I'd just have to wind up buying
another 4112 but I sure hope someone starts producing 17/32 7 degree bits so
I'm not stuck having to buy PC bits. Lost a little respect for them on this
one - I think the Omnijig will survive afterall Leon - good.
