First time making dovetails or box joints
I've only had this jig a few days, but I've cut some half-blinds so far. First set were too loose, and after adjustment, the next set was too tight. The joints look pretty good for a novice. Instructions are adequate. Unit is very well built, but the lettering on the templates are hard to read without getting a good angle with plenty of light. I'm looking forward to learning more. Once these things are dialed in I believe that it will be easy enough to make quality joints.

Very good product
I replaced my rockler dovetail jig with this porter cable 4012. The 4012 is a much superior product and easier to use. I certainly recommend it.

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.
