Dovetail and finger joint—JUMBO TEMPLATE UPGRADE
Expand the versatility of your Gifkins finger joint or dovetail joint jig by purchasing a Jumbo template upgrade.
The Jumbo version of our standard finger joint and dovetail joint jig has the longer jig body to build larger boxes, blanket boxes, household items and furniture. Imagine the possibilities in the home and your workshop!
Each Jumbo template upgrade contains:
- one Jumbo template: choose from Jumbo A, Jumbo B, Jumbo F5 and Jumbo F15
- cutter/s to match each template
- additional accessories included for finger joint templates, and
- finally, a pair of backing boards.
The productive area between stops on the block is up to 480mm. See the specification tab for details of pin sizes, pin spacings and timber thicknesses. Click on the gallery to view a larger image of the templates.
Select a template model and quantity using the options on the right. Then ‘add to cart’. Repeat the process for each different template type.
Please note: postage will be added when we process your order.
The Jumbo jig templates…
- Jumbo A dovetail joint jig template cuts the same-sized dovetails as the standard A10 template. However, the pin spacing is increased by 10mm, from 18mm to 28mm.
- Again, Jumbo B dovetail joint jig template cuts the same-sized dovetails as standard B10 template. However, the pins spacing is increased by 28mm, from 20mm to 48mm.
Note: The greater pin spacing on the longer dovetail joint templates creates a clean, uncluttered look. Make furniture and boxes that are reminiscent of old-style handmade dovetail furniture.
- Jumbo F5 [5mm] finger joint template cuts the same finger joint as the standard F5 template.
- Finally, the Jumbo F15 [15mm] finger joint template cuts the same finger joint as the standard F15 template.
NOTE: All the Jumbo templates are interchangeable on the Jumbo jig body only. For the specifications of each template see TEMPLATE SPECS at the top of the page.
Safety and ease of operation…
We recommend you add two Bessey Kliklamps and clamp holders to your JUMBO TEMPLATE UPGRADE. The clamps are designed to house the Bessey clamp at a safe distance above the cutter; the clamps are easy to put on and take off!
