General Tools Mortise & Tenon Jig

General Tools


This tool provides a quick and easy, all-in-one solution to cut both a matching mortise and tenon with a single inexpensive jig. Designed in-house by General's engineering team, the Model 870 jig is ready to use right out-of-the-box to produce 1/4" mortise and tenon joints for cabinets, furniture and frames. Included are the bushings for also producing 3/8" and 1/2" joints. Using a plunge router with the jig, woodworkers can cut fully aligned mortises and tenons ranging from 1/4" to 1/2" wide and from 1" to 3" long. The unit can be mounted directly on a workbench or onto a board that can be clamped in a vise or to a bench. The unit can easily handle stock ranging from 1/2" to 1.5" thick and can cut multiple mortises in a single long piece.
