I missed it last time and noticed the sale is back so got one.

Rockler Dovetail Jig:
Cutting beautiful through and half-blind dovetails is fast and easy with our new and improved dovetail jig! Rockler's exclusive one-piece stop gives you the perfect offset every time for dead-on dovetailing accuracy. And our new preset template guide allows for quick initial setup for 1/2" to 3/4" thick stock. Jig will cut half-blind dovetailed joints from 1/2" to 1-1/8" thick and full through dovetails from 3/8" to 3/4" thick. Accommodates stock up to 11" wide. Requires router with 1/2" collet.

Features:

8mm diameter bits are 25% larger than typical 1/4" bits, reduce chatter and fit all existing Rockler dovetail jigs

Preset template and fence locations clearly marked for standard thickness stock

Clamping bars include abrasive surface to grip stock and prevent slipping

Depth gauge on template for setting dovetail bit height for half-blind joints

Rockler Dovetail Jig Dust Collector:

You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get dust collection with a dovetail jig. Our revolutionary new dust collector eliminates virtually all the dust created when cutting dovetails. It easily attaches to Rockler's Dovetail Jig and a shop vacuum or dust collection system to provide you with a clean cutting area and safe working conditions.

Features:

Easily attaches to Rockler's dovetail jigs

Built-in 2-1/4" port fits most shop vac hoses (not included)

Sliding baffle directs the dust collection to where the dovetails are being cut

Sweep brush adjusts to provide a complete seal for stock thicknesses of 1/2" up to 1-1/8"

Seems really odd to use 8mm shank bits. I know it comes with an adapter but still.

Interesting observation. As long as it fits the router with 1/2" collet I guess it'll work. There are tons of reviews and videos on this jig that'll hopefully help make setup foolproof.

Honestly I don't mean to thread crap but you can get the Porter Cable 4216 12in. Deluxe Dovetail Jig for just about the same price and it's a really nice jig.

The jig at Rockler looks a lot like this one for $37.99 [harborfreight.com] and you can use a 20% off coupon to get it for less

Amazon sells this same jig under the Woodstock [amazon.com] name and so does Grizzly [grizzly.com].

Grizzly has a nicer user guide [grizzly.com] than HF and HF has a nice video showing how to get good dovetails.

Even more interesting great video how to cut four dovetail joints in 12 minutes [woodmagazine.com]

Yes I know, but why not use standard 1/2" bits that are even stronger and more readily available

Thanks for the link. Just really starting out. Do you know if these cordless options are strong enough or even have the option to use 1/2 bits?

Makita XTR01Z comes with 1/4" and 3/8" collet. You could get one from HomeDepot and try it out.

Built a Pantorouter, and never needed another joint accessory since. Mortis, Bows, Dovetails, and even some joints yet to be named, are so easy with it.

So many things I use it for. It's the best advancement in woodworking since they invented the router.

I've yet to see a cordless with the oomph needed to handle 1/2" bits safely. Hopefully one day. Smilie
Starting out, might be a good idea to build yourself a router table to assist you. It's great to get a feel with in those early hours in the grain.
