First, the router table insert that accepts the eBush went missing. It arrived in Kansas City, then mysteriously was sent by the USPS to Knoxville, Tennessee; I called Rockler, who sent me a replacement in an overnight UPS package — wonderful Customer Service!
The new RTJ400 dovetail and finger joint jig arrived from Leigh Industries. Once everything on the router table was installed, I assembled the new jig in 10 minutes flat. This does not count the time I spent watching the DVD that came with the jig.
Leigh reaches a totally new level of ease of assembly with the RTJ400. I did not even have to read the User Guide to be able to assemble the jig properly. All I can say about this is WOW!
In the short video above I play with the jig on the new router table, as I get the feel for the combo. The only times I have used a dovetail jig on a router table was when I first got the R9 Plus jig, also from Leigh.
The RTJ400 feels “right”. It is balanced perfectly for router table use; also, it is not top-heavy. It probably has to do with the beautifully machined template, which is always on the bottom of the jig assembly. In the video I had not yet waxed the bottom of the template, nor the top of the router table top. I will use Renaissance wax on both surfaces, looking for the minimal resistance as I use the jig.
