These Leigh jigs produce precisely fitting single, twin, triple and even quadruple matching joint halves in standard, angled, and compound angled configurations. Both use snap-in joint guides to define the width and length of the mortise and tenon by controlling the movement of the sub-base over the tabletop, while integral guide pins provide positive adjustment for joint fit.
They are quick to set up and easy to use with most makes of 1/2" plunge routers with two through fence rod holes at least 5/16" (8mm) in diameter. Just pass two clamping rods through the fence guide holes or exchange the sub-base for the router's baseplate*.
The pedestal table comes assembled and adjusts to suit workpiece dimensions and joint positioning. Includes five guides (for 1/2" to 1 1/2" long joints in 1/4" increments), a 5/16" spiral upcut bit (1/2" shank), mounting hardware and tools, and instructions. Additional guide sets for 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" joints are available individually or in a set of 16. Use different combinations of cutters and guides to produce miniature work, such as for dollhouse furniture.
The jigs have the same capabilities but employ different materials and clamping systems. The Pro model is made largely from machined aluminum with an anodized finish, while the Super is CNC-punched and formed steel plate with a durable powder coating.
To hold work securely, the Pro uses quick-release cam clamps instead of the Super's F-clamps (both clamp styles have a 3" capacity). The Pro has a built-in dust-collection port; for the Super, a vacuum attachment (sold separately) bolts to the back of the jig (mounting hardware and adapters for 1" to 2 1/2" vacuum hoses included).
* Both jigs include mounting screws for Porter-Cable models 693, 890, 7529 & 8529. Additionally, the Super FMT Jig comes with screws for Festool models OF1400, OF2200 & OFT2926VV. The Pro FMT Jig includes screws for the Porter-Cable models listed above, the Makita models #RP1100, RP1101, RP0910, and Triton models TRC001 & MF001.
