Latest Update: All of the jigs except the Porter-Cable Dovetail jig are sold and gone. I found all the original parts for the Porter Cable (other than the English manual) and will sell it for the best offer I can get. If you represent a school or club that could use it I would donate it for free.

------------------------------------------------------------

I have 4 rather large jigs I just don't use. I found my motor skills were so-so and ended up about 10 years ago getting a CNC so these have all sat here collecting dust. As far as I know they are all immaculate and I'm the original owner.

1. Delta Tenoning Jig 1345985 - this is for use on a table saw and it's quite a hunk of steel. I think I used it only a few times before getting the FMT (below). The new delta jig isn't the same imho and retails for $150. One of these in so-so shape sold used on ebay for $70. Asking $50.

2. Porter-Cable 16" Dovetail Jig - Omnijig 55160 (dated 2008). I have the original template and I think not much else. This worked quite well for making uniform dovetails. It cost originally about $400 I think. Asking $200.

3. Incra-Jig Ultra - this is a beast of a jig and the most precise fence ever - but it's physically large. I've included a photo of a desk pedestal dovetail (my current office desk) I made with it. No longer available I have no idea what it cost but I think well over $300 new. I'm asking $125.

4. Leigh FMT Pro jig. This is as far as I can tell identical to the current FMT pro other than where the name is. I could be wrong. This worked flawlessly for me and makes great mortise/tenon pairs. Current retail is $1199. I think I paid half that and am asking $350. I have all the original equipment but have used the awesome clamps elsewhere and may be minus a washer or so.

I'm open to offers on any of this stuff, especially if you're a minor.

Not sure where you are located, but I would be very interested in the incra jig and possibly the porter cable dovetail. Could you message me your location?

EDIT: Thanks to Roy below, I know you're in Chapel Hill. Unfortunately a bit too far for me. I withdraw from contention here.

Thanks for the note. Subject to confirmation, I think the Delta and Incra jigs are being sold to Blackhawk.

As of 7PM, due to location, Blackhawk has passed on the Delta and Incra so they're both available. PM me if you want the Incra?

That was actually the first PM I've ever originated so welcome to the group.

And... the Incra Jig is sold.

So, that leaves the Porter-Cable Dovetail Jig and the Delta Tenoning Jig.

Thanks also Fred. How do you become able to pm. I'm very new but really like this site.
While your status is 'new user', you are restricted from a lot of the site. After a period of time (I think it's 30 days), and 5 posts, you will graduate to the next level.

Sorry, the incra fence is sold.

If Bill takes the tenoning jig, this seems to leave just the Porter-Cable Dovetail Jig which I would, at this point, entertain any offer on. I have no idea what it's worth.

Do you have the manual for the PC dovetail jig ? I know you said ” not much else”, but how about the bits ?

OK this is embarrassing but somehow I have the French and Spanish manuals but the English one, if I had to guess, I carefully put in my 'personal documentation' folder - wherever that ended up. I do have the DVD : )

I have 4 guides which I think came with it and you're welcome to a 1/2" shaft grizzly dovetail bit I have in my bin that to my eye looks completely unused. I think it's this one: Super-Duty 3/4" 14 Dovetail Bit, 1/2" Shank

I've attached a PDF of the manual that I found online.
