Hi Waka

He's asking pretty much full price for it as far as I can see. I paid £100 for mine from the same guy who imported my Unisaw.

Anybody got any experience with the Dakota tenoning jig?

Might just be the pictures but I feel the Delta one looks a little more robust, mind you I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

There was a recent group test in FWW-they were pretty much all exactly the same with different badges, so shouldn't be a problem. Dan's email is danrh@tiscali.co.uk.
Cheers
Philly :D

Name: Dave. Rating: 5/5
Am very impressed - it's probably better than Norm's. Easy to adjust, rock solid, holds its settings, built like a brick outhouse. Needs modification for Jet Supersaw (possibly others) - but easy and well worth it. Slider bar needs moving - simply drill two extra fixing holes in the baseplate to move the whole jig about 2 inches closer to the blade. (Drill one hole, attach the slider fairly tightly, fit to the saw and adjust for precisely parallel travel, carefully slide off the saw without moving the slider bar, mark and drill the second hole.) Can highly recommend it - much safer than home made kit, and you'll get dead easy, accurate tenons every time. Move over Norm!
Just a small review from one person who have purchased the Dakota version from Rutlands .
Anyone else purchased the Dakota Tenoning jig as I am also interested in it ?

Does this Dave bloke work for Rutlands by any chance?

Cynic :D But how he can give it 5/5 when he practically had to rebuild the thing I don't know. Presumably it's not mentioned anywhere else that it might not fit certain saws without modification? I'd look for myself, but Rutlands isn't particularly Firefox friendly so I don't visit their site if I can help it. (It's a pathetic protest, but mine own. :roll: )

Cheers, Alf

The Delta jig that I have did not fit my Unisaw straight out of the box either. This was due to the fact that the jig was set up for a right tilit blade and my Unisaw (and the Jet SS) is left tilt.

The Delta jig however was pre drilled for a left tilt blade and just required a bit of unscrewing and reassembly which was covered in the instructions.

5/5 for something you have to re-engineer is not being objective.

Its pages 30 to 35 in issue 151.

If you cannot find a copy, PM me I may be able to help. :)
