    This review is from: Shop Fox D3246 Tenoning Jig (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I recommend this jig based on the Shop Fox D3246 Tenoning Jig I received from PeachtreeWoodworking Supply Inc.

    I was hesitant to order based on Mr. Decker’s review. The jigs he examined all rocked on the saw table. The jig I received also initially exhibited rocking. Inspection showed rocking was the result of the main lock lever’s stud slightly protruding below the base plate and resting on the saw table. Thus, the stud lifted the base plate from the table at one point. Retracting the stud allowed base plate to sit flat on the table and eliminated rocking.

    The jig is designed for use only on the left side of the blade. There are two sets of guide bar mounting holes in the base plate. The base plate’s holes are positioned at about 3-3/4 inches (right tilting saw), and 4-15/16 inches (left tilting saw) from the saw blade edge of the base plate.

    This jig is now used with a Craftsman 113.299040 10 inch left tilt table saw I purchased in the mid ’70s. After positioning the guide bar for my left hand tilting saw, the base plate clears the blade by about 7/16 inch.

    The Instruction Manual is well written. Safety, adjustment, operations, and parts
    sections are provided. All threads are metric, and five Allen wrenches are supplied.

    One complaint is the use of plastic for the four black locking levers. Each lever drives a locking bolt or nut via splines (like those on faucet stems). Levers are repositioned on the splines by lifting, rotating, and releasing. For durability, I would prefer metal levers driving hexagonal locking bolts or nuts rather than splines. Plastic locking levers were the only reason for a one star demerit.

    Examination of images of other (e.g., Delta, Grizzly, Jet, Powermatic, and Rockler) tenoning jig images, shows them all to be very similar in design. My neighbor’s ten year old Delta jig is identical except for make, paint color, and a different style wood clamp knob. It appears all makes use plastic locking levers.

    The unit was ordered in the evening of Nov. 24th. Peachtree shipped the unit via USPS on the 25th and it arrived on the 27th.

    At about $70 delivered, the Shop Fox was the best value I found on the internet. On eBay, a similar Powermatic jig recently fetched about $425 delivered. I speculate some bidders didn’t do their research.

    Flawed/Warped Bases on ALL jigs, February 15, 2009

    I believe most of the tenon jigs presently in the US all share this same problem as they seem to come from the same foundry in China. The problem is that the bases are not milled flat and the jigs rock on the saw table, something one does not want with a tenon jig. I’ve ordered 2 Grizzly jigs, one Shop Fox and purchased locally a Delta tenon jig. ALL rock on the saw and are warped in the same plane. The Delta jig (4th one) I purchased from a local Western Tool Distributor and when I explained that the 3 previous (Amazon) jigs were warped, we took it out of the box and put in on a brand new Delta saw. He was scratching his head when it rocked also. We measured a front to back warp of .005″ and corner to corner .012″ warp. All of these jigs are exactly the same right out of the box except for the paint and name…right down to the broken styrofoam corner over the jig backstop in each box. Until this present stock of jigs get thrown in the recycle pile one will be hard pressed to get a well machined jig. As for me, I returned both Grizzly Jigs and the Delta (it was+$40 more with tax than the SF Jig). I needed one for a project and ended up gluing plastic shim stock to the base of the Shop Fox jig so it would not rock.
