Good deal...I'm not sure I've ever seen this kit this low. I paid $14x.xx for mine about a year ago. This includes the two standard-sized templates 4211 and 4213 and the miniature template 4215 and all the appropriate bits and guide bushings.

This kit has just about everything you need to get started. Be sure your router has a baseplate that accepts guide bushings and a centering bit to go with it. If not there are several universal plates you can buy.

Do yourselves a favor and dump the dovetail jigs.

Instead, build a pantorouter!! (Or buy one for like $1,000). I built mine 4 years ago and every single piece of joinery I do comes out perfect, and with very little effort.

The pantorouter build took me about 4 days (but I only have 1 arm/leg, AND I built it with a mobile cabinet base). Once you try one, you probably won't even do dovetails anymore since you'll have so many, better, more beautiful designs that you can do.

Currently, I'm making a table and doing a 5 way castle joint on legs (that are 8"x8" red oak) and a 7 pin m&t joint on mid supports. And it would've taken me just as long to make a dovetail design for a 24x36 box enclosure.

Seriously... it's not a tough build if you use Matthias Wendell's plans ($10). But I recommend not using the drawer slides, and instead using a SBR12 linear rail and 12LUU bearings. It gives me 11 square inches of depth to mortise.

Yeah.. it's made my life soooo much easier. I just wish I didn't built it so well. Because now I can't justify buying a newer aluminum version for $1,000 to my wife lol.

I legitimately would want to learn more about pantorouters but this is not the correct venue. Just link to something that does that, and don't distract from the deal conversation. I love dovetail related gear and have an alert set as such. TY OP
