What's Hot?

  • Includes built-in gauges for setting the router-bit height

What's Not?
  • You'll need to buy additional templates to cut anything other than half-blind or sliding dovetails
Bottom Line The Porter Cable 4210 dovetail jig kit is the entry-level dovetail jig in Porter Cable’s excellent 4200 range. It shares the same base as the rest of the range and like all the jigs in the range it has Porter Cable’s patented alignment lines and router bit depth stop which make it incredibly easy to use. The 4210 includes an ultra-durable CNC-machined aluminum template for creating half-blind, rabbeted half-blind, and sliding dovetails, and you can add additional templates for different joints later as and when you need them. With everything you need to get started the Porter Cable 4210 really is fantastic value at only $109.99 and is a great way to get into cutting dovetails.
