I really like this product from milescraft. It is soid in the hand and very easy to use. Very well executed!
The Milescraft JointPro Doweling jig is such a great tool if you are looking for something that will make drilling dowel holes easy! It’s incredibly easy to alter the setup of the jig to accommodate what you are building, just a matter of unscrewing and tightening a couple screws. I had no problems drilling my holes, and by following the instructions in their video, I was able to easily set it up and the holes matched up perfectly! Would definitely recommend this product!
I love this product, I have used it on a few projects now from making a simple frame for a mirror to making a toy chest, every project I have used it on I become more impressed with the product. The jig is easy to set up for any type of joint you want to do, the instructions are very clear and concise which allows the jig to be set up in minutes. The accuracy of this tool makes for very tight and clean joints, I use the Milescraft 3/8″ fluted dowels to create very strong joints. I would recommend this product to anyone even if it cost twice as much as Milescraft sells it for. This is a great tool for every woodworker to have in their collection.
What a well built and well thought out product! So easy to set up, easy to align and made for seemless joints. Thank you Milescraft for another great product.
Very good quality and and finished.
Excellent quality jig for making vanities. Put together with dowel bucket projects go quite smoothly. The online tutorial video is an great help before starting any project. Kudos to Milescraft.
I give the jig 4 stars because the instructions need improvement. Using the jig is not intuitive but with practice on scrap, instructions in hand, I got the hang of it. The directions, as noted by other reviewers, are not as helpful as they should be. For example, I assumed that dowel hole locations would be centered, rearranging the drill guide blocks to meet that assumption was frustrating until I fould illustrations on the box. It would have been very helpful if those illustrations were on pg. 2 of the instructions. The drilled dowel holes are off center by design.
Some reviewers complained that the M5 Phillips head bolts were too tight to remove without damaging the heads; they were tighter than I expected, but with a properly fitting Phillips screwdriver and some care I had no problem.
The drill holes in the guide blocks are refreshingly close to size, the advice to insert drill before turning on the power is right on. That speaks volumes for the precision of this jig. The corner joints I made in scrap 3/4″ plywood aligned the boards impressively. I need more practice with the jig before I use it to construct the cabinet my wife has been after me to build.
There is no comparison between the JointPro and the low cost, deeply flawed “self-centering dowel jig” I purchased from a popular import store. The JointPro is considerably more expensive, but it is well worth the investment.
After using the JointPro for flawless corner and edge joints, I encountered frustration and inaccuracy when making surface joints. The instructions call for drawing a line for dowel locations on the surface to be joined to the upright board. There is a problem when the upright has to be dimensionally accurate from the edge of the surface board. That is because the dimension from the centerline of the guide block holes is odd. Mine locates holes approximately 13/32″ from the outside edge the upright. Setup is doable but it becomes more complicated than it would be if the dimension to centerline were a standard 3/8″. When I first examined the jig, I wondered why the holes in the guide blocks were not located at the exact center of a 3/4″ board, I still do not understand the rationale for the jig’s construction. I am currently building a 30″ wide by 15″ deep by 72″ tall knotty pine hutch the sides of which will be inset exactly 1″ from the outside edges of the horizontal working surface to make constructing drawers and doors easier. Rather than cutting dados as I typically do, I planned to dowel, glue, and pocket screw the sides in place. The dowels are meant to stop the little bit of slippage I often get with pocket screws. Given the odd dimensions of my JointPro, it is going to make construction longer and more involved.
These are Christmas gifts and I’m certain they’ll be well liked and used….
Solid piece of kit. Looking forward to putting to use.
This device has its pros and cons, so you need to know limitations. It is a bit confusing how you need to place the work pieces to do correct drilling. But in the end the outcome is great when done right, so 5 stars here
