      Comments about GENERAL TOOLS General® Doweling Jig With Bit Stop (840):

      After purchasing this kit, trying to decipher the instruction book enclosed, and reading these other reviews I decided to return the product. There is no explanation of attaching the drill stops so they would be straight and level on the bits. The drill bushings allow a wobble of the drill bit while in place resulting in a less than aligned hole. ( I need the product to make a properly aligned hole, that's why I bought it)

          This product is a less expensive Doweling jig then others out there. Unfortunately, I got what I paid for... After ruining several pieces of wood and losing my temper a couple of times, I decided that it wood have been cheaper to buy a higher quality Jig.

              Comments about GENERAL TOOLS General® Doweling Jig With Bit Stop (840):

              I purchased this jig because it had all the features that I wanted. However, after using it, I found out it did not perform as advertised. At first, I thought it was user's error but after destroying several pieces of wood I concluded it was not the user but the design of the jig. [...]I read Frank B's comments dated 10/1/07 and TOTALLY agree with his findings. One finding Frank did not mention is the design of the jig does not allow for the proper framing of the wood against the backstop consequently leading to misaligned holes. Needless to say, I did not re-order the jig. I do not recommend this jig.

                  Comments about GENERAL TOOLS General® Doweling Jig With Bit Stop (840):

                  Regardless of how precisely you mark your intended hole location, line up the jig and crank it down, this jig does not hold the bit true. It allows the bit to move as well as drill at a slight angle. The result is that the wood you are joining does not line up and needs substantially more sanding than should be necessary with doweling.
