Solid work horse
Ordered the dovetail jig to make some nice drawers for a friend. The jig came ready for use with little set up right out of the box. I did read the directions and was off making dovetails like a pro.

Offset guide inaccuracies
The offset guide that should align the two pieces of wood perfectly when making blind dovetails seems to be just a bit off. When assembling the two pieces of wood after cutting the dovetails they are misaligned by about 1/32 - 1/16 inch. You can compensate for that by cheating the vertical piece just a little away from the guide, but that shouldn't be necessary. Other than that it works fine.

Much better then what I had.
I was a little reluctant to order this only because I already owned a Craftsman jig and never liked it. Believe me this ain't no Craftsman. I took this out of the box and was cutting good dove tails on my second attempt. Much easier to set up then the Craftsman and better built. The only thing I regret a little about this purchase is I didn't spend a little more and buy the 4216 and thats just because I will probably be ordering the smaller template before long. Good value and built well.
