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.

1-0 out of 5 stars Cracked like chalk before first use!! Deserves 0 Stars.
What can I say about a product supposedly made of steel that quite literally breaks in half when taken out of its box?

I was going to use for the first time and was ready to asemble it, when I noticed that the two large sides sides had separated. It turns out the "metal" hinge between them had snapped right down the middle. The exposed surfaces had the texture of broken chalk and, obviously, this thing is just as brittle. Since I didn't exert any force on this thing and since I didn't hear any popping or cracking sound. I can only assume that it was package broken. I'm getting my money back.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a godsend
I have never had any way to rip non-square lines on my table saw in the past. Consequently, it's always been difficult. I finally broke down and decided to buy a taper jig, and this thing is awesome! It's inexpensive, light, easy to setup and use, and makes it almost impossible not to cut straight. This is something that no one with a table saw should be wihout.

5-0 out of 5 stars A quickie preview
At the risk of having my head chopped off for writing a review before I received the product, I thought this was worth mentioning. I was looking for a tapering jig that would save me the time of having to build one. (Engineering time, etc.) For the cost of this unit, it seems like a no brainer. I looked at the Big Horn, which was number 140 in Amazons sales rank, so their are a lot of them sold. This Vermont American is a new listing. I noticed that the main comment of dissatisfaction with the Big Horn was the lightness of the unit. Their was a mention of being able to bend it in half. I noticed the shipping weight on the Big Horn was a mere 1.7 pounds. The shipping weight on this Vermont American is 2.75 pounds. That is a 60% increase in the weight of the unit. The extra pound plus probably means additional strength. The other thing I liked is the lifetime replacement warranty. Once I get the unit, I will post a more complete review. I gave it 4 stars because I felt it was a neutral outlook, and would be glad to give it a 5 if the unit measures up. Thanks for your time.
Wellllllllll here is the follow up. It arrived. Box weight 5 lbs. This unit you can not bend in half, unless you put it between cinderblocks and stand on it. Easy to set up.
I have come to love cast iron, lead sled, old fashioned, micro adjutable machinery. This is none of that, but it more than adequately does the job. It is made from formed sheet steel-painted. You can fine set it manually. By measuring off the trailing edge of the workpiece-touching the blade, you can get an exact setting. It comes with a measuring indicator, and that indicator leaves a little room for adjustment when tightening it down.
I was curious if the tapering jigs had a stop block on the workpiece side, and sure enough it does. This unit is reversible for both left and right tilt saws. It is designed to work with radial arm saws as well.
The foremost factor in this unit is that it does the job adequately and is so cheap, that if you bought it just for the mounting handle, and sliding adjuster, and built your own out of wood and a hinge, it would be worth it. I will use the unit, just the way it is. If I was tapering legs for a living, I would be looking for cast iron lead sled.
Some things you need a high quality piece of equipment. Some things, it is not as radically neccessary to have the best.
Here are the essentials. The unit adjusts very easily, and the adjustment locks up very true, and will not creep a setting. The unit lays flat on the table, and will not create a rocking piece while cutting, especially if pressed down onto the table while cutting.
In conclusion: I don't know how much need I will have to make tapering legs, but for this kind of money, it is reassuring to know that I have the capability. I don't want to make the Vermont Tapering jig to be more than it is, but it is well made to do the job more than adequately. ... Read more

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

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

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

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 the plunging 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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Makes using a router FUN!
This router table turns your router into a stationary power tool. Until I purchased this table using a router was difficult. Now I am making crafts and furniture like a pro. Simply flip your router and mount it to the underside on this table and you are ready to go. If you have limited woodworking skills and are interested in making crafts or building furniture and you want the results that the pros get from their tools, I would recommend that you give this product a try! ...

8. Vermont American 23477 Biscuit Joiner

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

Features

  • Use your router as a plate/edge joiner.
  • Biscuit joinery is stronger and can replace many conventional wood joining methods.
  • For use with 6" or smaller round base plate.
  • 24 biscuits included.
