WOOD magazine review

Porter-Cable Omnijig 77240 dovetail jig

Review Summary

To celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary, the folks at Porter-Cable decided to take the trial-and-error (and head-scratching and cursing) out of making dovetails. So they designed the new 24" Omnijig Joinery System with color-coded instructions right on the jig, and built-in depth stops for setting your router bit’s cutting depth. Out of the box, the model 77240 makes through- and half-blind dovetail joints, with variable spacing for that hand-cut look.
An optional mortising template expands the jig’s repertoire by adding mortise-and-tenon joinery.
