Here's what I'm finding: First there are two basic approaches. One can use a jig of the Leigh-type or a precision router fence like the one from Incra or JoinTech. The latter approach is more expensive but provides accurate (very accurate) precision in non-dovetail router applications, too. The former approach, using a fixed jig (shouldn't that be called a fixture?), presents one with a myriad of choices. Most consider the Leigh to be the top end. It's pricy but very flexible. Porter-Cable has a medium priced unit but it's not as flexible as the Leigh. The Katie jig seems to be a reasonable compromise for me -- medium price, simple but doesn't have nearly as many features as the Leigh -- features I don't think I'll use -- kinda like all the featues on my cell phone that I never use.... Althoug I might want half dovetails -- not sure how katie jig does them..
Anyway, I'm getting ready to buy the katie jig -- anybody think I'm making a serious mistake?
