Editorial Review

Most woodworkers own a router, but not near as many own a biscuit joiner. Here’s the best of both worlds at an economical price. Vermont American’s jig turns most any router into a biscuit joiner. Just a little assembly out of the box, and you’ll be cutting biscuit slots like nobody’s business. Your router attaches to the included base plate, which sits atop a two-piece, smooth-riding carriage assembly. The position of your cut on the board is determined by the height of the three-bladed slot-cutting bit. Careful marking of centerlines gets you a slot as accurate as one made with a true biscuit joiner, using biscuits in sizes 0, 10, and 20 and allowing you to make strong butt joints, splined miters, and edge joints like a pro. It’s only a little more work than a real joiner, but we think the savings is worth it if yet another power tool isn’t in your budget. If you already have the luxury of a second router, this is the perfect accessory for you.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Dangerous to use
This jig is dangerous.There is no way to clamp the workpiece to the jig. When you push the jig and workpiece through the saw blade, the saw blade wants to pull the workpiece away from the fence and into the blade. This is very unsafe. If you manually hold the workpiece against the fence your precious digits will be much too close to the blade.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Finger-Chopper.
Old woodworkers never die, they just disappear one piece at a time.

That is what may happen if you try to use this jig.It is flimsy, poorly engineered, and is quite dangerous.I envision personal injury plaintiff attorneys salivating like Pavlov's dog over this device.There is no means by which to hold the workpiece against the side of the jig, requiring the user to hold the workpiece with the other hand.This places that hand in close proximity to the saw blade.A better design would have been to provide a flange beneath the workpiece and an adjustable toggle clamp on top to press the workpiece firmly in place.The user could then keep his/her hands on the handle and away from the blade.I attached a piece of 1/4" masonite to the bottom of mine to provide a flange, and added a much-needed toggle clamp.

The jig is flimsy, and twists easily, causing uneven cuts.One must take particular care not to apply torsional pressure to it while cutting.The jig could have been made more robust.In fact, a good glass-filled plastic or polycarbonate design would have been more stable than the extruded aluminum.

Do yourself a favor and make your own out of a couple 2x2s, some masonite board and a hinge.

Cheers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favor and do your homework
Lots of people get caught up in gadgetry.Go to your local supply house (woodcraft.... ) or stop by any furniture making shop and see how many of them have this in their shop.NONE all of these type jigs are junk and UNSAFE.As with many jigs you are better off making your own.It will be SAFER, more reliable and more consistent. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Not for Sears Professional Routers
Although it claims to fit "All Sears" Routers, there are no hole sets for the Sears Professional Series Routers, which have a four screw configuration, as opposed to three for the smaller Craftsman routers.

Otherwise, it's an OK product.The bushings are steel, and the baseplate is plastic. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice, for the price
I just purchased this router table, so I have not used it too much yet.However, I think this router table does a nice job.The slide out on the fence turns the router into a jointer...very useful.It took about an hour to setup, and its not the highest quality, but, for under $100, it will do the job for most weekend woodworkers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Dynamite
Hate to rain on the parade but this is not a fantastic tool accessory.An excellent tool or tool accessory allows you to focus on your work instead of the tool and should bring ease and or precision to the process.First of all this table will take some time to set up and even more time to adjust the side tables to be level and flush with the main table.Next you will note that the included miter quage is useless for any precision work (ie. any work with a router).It has significant play in its (very shallow) slot, so cuts will not be smooth or square.You cannot use your table saw miter guage either because the slot is not standard.Next you will find that the router attachment hardware is cumbersome and of questionable design.In the name of building a universal table Vermont American has designed a system of four metal clips which grip your router in a precarious way.As far as tightening goes, there are no ergonomic handles or wing nuts.You will be tightening the four screws with your socket wrench and a deep socket, or a crescent wrench.Since there is so much going on you will have to flip the entire table upside down to install or uninstall the router, which will be even less convenient if you have the fence installed, leading to my next gripe: the fence when removed leaves you with seven pieces to keep track of until you reinstall.There is nothing convenient or quick about this table.And one more thing- if you own a Porter-Cable plunge router, don't even think of buying this table.The clips hold your router in such a way as to bind its face- making theplunging action almost impossible.The power switch is a nice feature, and the fence is decent, but you can build a far better table in just a few hours, so don't bother with this.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great product
I wasn't sure about purchasing the Vermont American Deluxe Router table because I'm just begining as a woodworker, but the new table made it so easy. Now I'm able to deal with complex shapes and create things I would have never even attempted before.

I'm always looking for tools that make things easier, and if they make me look like I've been woodworking for years at the same time, it's even better. I think this is a product that's perfect for anyone, a beginner or a seasoned pro. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Vermont American 23455 Letter Template
The template bracket holds the letter template so high off the wood stock, it is impossible to use the smaller templates because you must use a 1/4 inch diameter router bit and they don't come long enough in total length to reach the surface of the wood from your router. I tried a "v" groove router bit 2 inches in length and it doesn't reach the wood. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Vermont American 23460 Dovetail Fixture
I bought this jig to make some kitchen drawers. I have never made dove tails before. I found the machine easy to assemble and the directions to be clear. It is a hit and miss process to get the right dovetail length. Too long and the wood won't go together. Too short and the joint is loose. Make pratice cuts before trying your finished project. The jig alignment is dead on accurate.My only complaint is that the bar used to clamp the wood tends to put two horizontal dents into it. The use of a pad will remedy that problem. Its a good, light duty jig. ... Read more
