In a recent article (Loaded for Bear)I showed the following photo of the router bit set I use to machine dovetails on the Leigh jigs:
For clarification: The parts on the lid were not included in the router bit set. I included them for illustration purposes.
Brian in Texas wrote to ask where I got this set. I bought this kit many years ago — I believe it was in 2001, or maybe in 2002. It is the Highland Hardware set, and includes collars to allow use of the 8-mm router bits in 1/2-inch collets:
I checked at the Highland web site, to make sure that sets are still available. I must admit I have never bought any more dovetail bits, as this set has lasted this long. Sure enough, they are still available in sets. The Highland Hardware web site states that their current kit is equivalent to the Leigh 5116-8 router bit set, shown in the following photo (from the Rockler web site):
Thanks for writing, Brian. Keep us posted!
