extreme accuracy as usual !

Review Summary

I"ve had the dowel max jig for several years now and it has performed flawlessly. So when I needed to make a good number of drawer boxes I decided to try the smaller 1/4 inch dowels for the 1/2 inch Baltic Birch material I was using. As usually the extreme accuracy made my boxes go together nicely. I even ordered an extra 1/4 inch drill with stop so I didn't have to adjust the depth of the stop when drilling the fronts and side pieces.
And by the way the drill and stop sold by Dowelmax is over sized just enough to make your dowels fit snugly but not so tight that you can't easily push in the dowels(about .005 ). Most common 1/4 inch twist drills are slightly undersized which makes fitting dowels almost impossible.
