Standard templates available for your jig:
The productive area between stops on the jig is approximately 300mm. See the gallery to view a larger image of the templates. Also, for the specifications of each template, VIEW TEMPLATE SPECS.
- H10 template cuts a small dovetail joint. Use it for small-scale work like delicate boxes and insert trays. Timber thickness range: 2mm to 10mm.
- H20 template cuts the same sized dovetail joint as the H10 template. The significant difference is a greater distance between pins. H20 is the template adapted for the Butterfly keys packages, as a STANDARD template and a MINI template. The H10 cutters are used with this template. Timber thickness range: 2mm to 10mm.
- A10 dovetail template cuts a medium-sized dovetail joint. It’s our most popular template because it offers you—the box maker—a versatile timber thickness range: 5mm to 13mm. Use thinner timber for delicate boxes and fine insert trays. Use thicker timbers for large jewellery boxes, drawers, file trays, pantry and table wear.
- B10 dovetail template profile suits large scale projects. Use this template for large drawers, blanket boxes and small furniture items and workshop boxes. Timber range: 14mm to 22mm.
- Each dovetail template needs specifically designed dovetail and straight cutters.
- F15 15mm finger joint template cuts a large straight joint. Use this template for blanket boxes, small furniture projects and boxes in the workshop. Template accessory included. Timber range: 14mm to 22mm.
The template has a specifically designed spiral cutter. The cutter is fitted with a colour-coded collar system to assist the fit of the joint.
Consider purchasing a purpose-built router table. It’s specially designed to give you—the box maker—a wide, clean and adaptable work surface. See the Gifkins table…click here.
To turn a carcass into a box—we recommend you purchase an Ultimate cutter kit. It’s specially designed to help you—the box maker—get down to the business of box making! See the Ultimate cutter kit…click here.
Safety and ease of operation…
We recommend you add clamp holders and two Bessey Kliklamps to your PREMIUM PACK. The clamps are designed to house the Bessey clamp at a safe distance above the cutter.
Easy on! Easy off!
