Good with some caveats
I've been using this jig to strengthen edge-to-edge joints in 4/4 walnut. I don't have a big shop, I don't even have a drill press, so when I needed to join boards together I looked here. I think what you're really paying for is the allignment of the holes on the jig. Having the measurements/offsets calculated for me is a big plus. Other jigs on the market require you to put the holes directly in the middle of a board, so making corner or T joints is hard. Plan on buying new set screws for the drill stops, as another reviewer mentioned, or just put a piece of masking tape on the drill bit to mark the stopping point and be careful. The clamps will mark up your boards (not such a big deal on walnut because it's tough, but I imagine this would mar up pine pretty good). The "good" side of the board is the side away from the clamp, so use your head here and think about which side of the boards you want to look nice. The boards do not always come out 100% flush, but I buy my wood surfaced because I don't have a power planer, so that's probably my fault. They've never been off by more than 1/32nd of an inch though, so sanding it flat again is no problem. You have to really be patient when you move the jig around to make the next hole, or else the boards will move. This is one of the more expensive dowel jigs on the market... if you bought two of these you're almost on your way to a biscuit jointer. However I think the fact that it can make three kinds of joints makes it a great value for those of us who don't have the room for a lot of big tools.

Pieces Well Matched

The instructions are vague and incomplete, but by following the instructions to a certain point and getting the wood in place, you can figure out how the pieces will go together and then just 'flip' the top one back 180 degrees. Doing so, and trying it first on pieces of scrap, I figured it out & it came out a success.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good for occassional use

I borrowed this kit to make a headboard. 1x4 Aspen, 18 dowels, 36 holes. Plus 8 tape measure mistakes. It was my first time doweling. I usually don't read instructions, but glancing through them made this process a whole lot easier. My workbench has a 3/4" top that I clamped to. Some of the clamps seemed a bit short, but it worked. The clamps only spun a few times. It's better than nothing, but not perfect. A few of my holes went in at an angle despite the use of these guides. The spacers seem to be tapered about 1/2-1 deg, probably because of casting, so you have to clamp two pieces together to keep the bushings straight when going into the side of a part. Ends were no problem. I didn't drill faces yet. At half the cost of a biscuit jointer, I don't think it's really worth the price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good tool, use with patience.

Before I bought this tool, I read the reviews. I took all the comments in mind when it was used. For the situation of the clamp putting marks on the boards, I put small pieces of 1/4 inch wood between the clamp and the work piece. That will take care of that problem. The drill stops will tend to move if you use too much pressure while drilling. Take your time and use a slower speed to avoid that problem. I have used that type of stop before. As far as any other problems, I had one hole that didn't line up correctly. That was do to not cleaning the wood debri that came from drilling previous holes in the assembly. So be sure to clean out as you go along. Take you time and use patience. If this is just a hobby, enjoy it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cheaply made

I have only used it a few times. The last time I used it I could not hand tighten the clamp well enough, so observing that the handle was squared, I thought a half a turn with a wrench should hold the wood in place. It did for the first hole, but the wide auxillary clamp broke when I did the second hole. It's definitely not made of metal and if it is, it awfully cheap stuff.
