Poor man's Dominio

Review Summary

I have made traditional mortise and tenon joint and had always wanted to try loose tenons but couldn't see spending nearly $1,000 on a Dominio machine. I received a email about this jig and it had a special introductory price, so I ordered one. When it arrived, I tried a test piece and everything went well. I then went to the flat panel door I had under construction. I finally got it finished but I found you had to be very precise when aligning the layout line and the jig.
Just a little off and the joints don't align. Other than that, it works great.
