Before I had my woodrat I used touse a Leigh but sold it after getting used to the rat.
I found that Axminster did their own cutters for the Leigh, back in the yellow perform cutter days and they were a fraction of the price of other cutters. I'm not sure if they do them in the newer Axcaliber Range.I believe that there is also a Dakota set specifically for the leigh but they would be from that dreaded supplier who never supplies!!
When Brimarc used to be the distributor they suggested I went to Handytools for individual bits as Axi and most others don't sell them. They have the full range of bits, bushes etc and service has been very good. Axi & Wealdon also tend to do 1/4 shank bits which chatter a lot, handytools have the 8mm shanks
I'm finding the whole Leigh thing very complicated...so many different jogs and variations. My Leigh is an early TD514-L and hardly features anywhere now ..even on the Leigh site. However, it seems to use the same fingers as the later jigs and so I am guessing that the difference is in the way that the fingers are held and adjusted. On my jig, the tightness of the dovetail is controlled by paper shims...a bit fiddly compared with later jigs.
Assuming that the above is correct, would the eccentric bushes allow me to adjust the tightness of the joints without fiddling with paper shims?
Trying to get some sort of response out of Handytools. Contact form not answered. Phone goes to message. Thing is I really need some advice re the eccentric bushes...which is proving difficult. Ditto the max length router bit etc.
