Detailed Description

Keller 2200 Journeyman Dovetail Jig

David Keller's remarkable dovetail templates make production of perfectly fitted through dovetails almost as easy as nailing joints together. With minimal set-up and just a few minutes' practice, you'll have the dovetail jig calibrated and basic technique fully under control; thereafter you'll be able to crank out uniformly spaced through dovetails at the drop of a hat.

One of the features that makes these dovetail jigs so easy to use is their bearing-guided carbide bits, designed to track directly against the template fingers. Router-mounted template guides aren't required, so you don't have to alter your router base or fiddle with installing bits through a guide turret. A pair of bits, dovetail and straight, is provided with each jig.

There are two Keller Journeyman jigs to choose from: Model 1500 for general-purpose joinery on a moderate scale, and Model 2200 for large-scale carcase assembly.

Keller Model 2200 is 22" long; it can handle stock up to 20" wide in a single pass, but with no end stops built in, there's literally no maximum stock width. Model 2200 handles stock from 5/8" to 1" thick. Pin centers are 1-3/4" apart, creating a balanced, not too busy layout for furniture-scale joinery. The jig comes with a pair of bearing-guided carbide bits, a 5/8", 7" dovetail and a 7/8" straight. Both bits have 3/8" shanks, and they're accompanied by a 1/2" adapter sleeve. An optional set of smaller bits: 7/16", 7" dovetail and 5/8" straight (with 1/4" shanks), lets this big jig take on smaller work such as drawers and boxes in stock down to 7/16" thick.

We provide our own user's guide to supplement the manual that comes with Keller jigs, with tips to get you through making a fence, calibrating template position and milling joints. Calibrating joint fit will take just ten or fifteen minutes. After that, all you ever have to do is set depth of cut and crank out exquisitely fitted dovetails.
