O'Brien dovetail neck joint routing jig, w/dovetail template set
Robbie O'Brien - influenced by many others - came up with the idea for this clever neck alignment and routing jig. The jig is simple but elegant in the way it helps you determine your correct neck angle and then gives you an easy way to transfer the angle to your neck. It also enables you to rout both the mortise and tenon accurately. Only a small amount of fitting is necessary after the routing is done. The jig comes in an unassembled flatpack, but it is relatively easy to assemble with a minimum of tools and glue. The video/article links (below) fully illustrate how to assemble/use the jig and have many helpful hints for making easy work of this often difficult task.
**Router bits and template guides are not included with the jig/templates.
Our 3/8" bit SPRB38 works well for hogging out the material on a dovetail–then follow with the 7-degree dovetail bit SP7DTL. These items are recommended below.
PLEASE NOTE: The dovetail mortise and tenon templates are different lengths to accommodate the offset created by the template guide when routing the dovetail mortise.
You need to use a 5/8 inch OD router guide bushing when using these templates.
