High precision doweling perfection.

Review Summary

I love this jig! I hadn't used a doweling jig for over twenty years,until I heard about this one. Definitely the most accurate and versatile doweling jig on the market. Bye, Bye mortise and tenon's! Much easier, faster and with this jig arguably as strong. And considering the cost of power tools to accomplish mortise and tenon ,or loose tenons, the cost of this jig doesn't seem high at all.
The only improvement I would suggest to the manufacturer is that it deserves enough respect to be delivered in a felt lined box, for proper storage when not in use.If like me you've had less than satisfactory results with other doweling jigs, get this one, you will not be disappointed. If your doubting, check out the reviews on Amazon. I think every review is 5 star except one, only because of the cost. PS: I just put together six very large drawers from half inch stock using the 1/4" dowel inserts and this was probably the easiest drawer assembly I've had to date. The 1/4" inserts don't come with the kit, but can be purchased separately. I have been using tongue and dado to make my drawer boxes but these went together so well I think I'm going to use these most of the time now.

DowelMax support

Review Summary

Technical support is the same high quality as the tool. Questions answered by DowelMax inventor or his son. They are focused on support of tool users and are very interested in discussion of possible new applications for DowelMax in the shop
