Customer Reviews

Very well made. The quality of the machining, weight and finish is reflected in the cost. Will take a bit of practice but so far the end results have been great. Need to order the larger size jig accessories for 10 and 14mm holes as these aren’t supplied with the basic kit sadly.

Woodworking tool.

This was a present for husband who hasn’t used it yet. Not the same one as he had seen, but hopefully be able to use soon. A couple of mini clamps to attach this to the wood would have been a bonus.(as in clip for product)

High quality

High quality tool needed for every workshop. Functional and precise jig. Fast delivery, the shipment was delivered to Lithuania within 3 days. Thank you.

Excellent Service and Product

Firstly, the service from WoodWorkers Workshop was exceptional. Other suppliers tend to blame the current Covid pandemic on their inability to get the goods to the customer quickly. Well the jig, along with the 6mm and 10mm replacement heads arrived less than 24hrs after ordering, a great performance from the supplier and courier (DPD) combined. Have now used the jig with the 10mm head to put together a router table base, and the 6mm head making cabinet drawers, and not been disappointed at all. In fact my expectations have been exceeded. The next time in use will most probably be to make a suitable box that the items deserve. A wonderful, accurate product to use. Expensive, but well worth it. Highly recommended.


I wish I had discovered this jig years ago; it is a first class piece of kit, built like a tank, and it's very accurate too.
I have yet to try out the 10mm and 6mm heads.
Highly recommended.
