Why do we like this jig?

This 24” jig is the finest we have ever seen. It is based on AKEDAs 16” model, which has been in production for several years. It has all the same proven features and shares all the same kits and accessories!

Did you know, AKEDAs guide fingers sit below the surface of the guide rail, so your router base never touches them?

The jig is manufactured to such a high degree of precision, we found we did not need the oversize and undersize guide bushings provided to fine-tune our joint fit.

Is it good value?

The BC24 weighs a phenomenal 40 lbs. (DC16 - 30 lbs.) so it provides you with a heavy base that absorbs vibration. The value is incredible! Compare it with similar jigs on a per lb. basis, and you will be shocked!

The AKEDA is the only jig that allows you to vary the angle of your through dovetail pins. This is a great feature! You can form steeper angled pins in thinner material where you need greater strength, more glue area and better aesthetics. You can use the shallower angle pin guides for thicker material.

Is the AKEDA really different to the others?

The reviewer in Fine Woodworking Magazine wrote, "The AKEDA jig truly is a new approach to cutting dovetail joints - and a successful one."

What options do we recommend?

For your BC24 we recommend AKEDAs comprehensive C-Kit which contains most of the available accessories including the full set of optional angle through dovetail pin guides.

We also recommend the clear acrylic router sub base (P/N 3700) and the accessory storage case (P/N 3710).

We?ve included a centering cone with our router sub base that allows you to accurately center the sub base (and therefore your guide bushing) when you install the sub base. This notch fits a pin on our sub base to prevent the guide bushing from rotating when you tighten it. We strongly recommend using a router sub base with any dovetail jig. It includes all the necessary mounting hardware.

You will get exactly the same results as using a standard size straight bit with a standard size guide bushing, because one cancels out the other. We have a few AKEDA oversize .319" straight bits with 1/4" shanks on clearance. Here is how you can save money.

It can be used as a temporary storage bin for the guide fingers that you are using to make your joint, or it can be turned upside down and stored underneath the open case.
