    Default Mortise and Tenon Jig

    Hi Guys, Just wondering if anyone has had anything to do with this jig.

    Seems there are quite a few different types on the market. One I saw on ebay for nearly six hundred dollars!!! Here it is here:

    I'd be interested in any feedback from the experts.Thanks.

    Eric,
    I cant claim to any expert on M&T jigs as I sort of hand cut mine with a little help from the drillpress and table saw. However looking at both of those jigs the trend $600 thing does not look like it would do any better job than the 870EZ. I had a quick look for a video demo and found this.

    Plenty other youtube items out there too.
    Regards
    John

    Thanks John, I didn't even think to look for demonstration videos . That one was pretty enlightening. I certainly couldn't justify spending $600.00, but the EZ870 seems good value. I might look around to see if they are available locally.
    Thanks again.
    Eric
