Chuck, I bought that model 23 years ago when I started my woodworking business. It is an excellent jig for making standard 1/2", half blind dovetails, as they are called. They are no longer made and parts are no longer stocked by Porter Cable. If you foresee having use for a dovetail jig, and you have the space to store it when not in use, it is my opinion that for the 1/2" half blind DTs, you won't find any jig that is any better than this one for any money. Many are worse, and others are just as good, but this is a well built, solid jig. I still use mine for all of my drawers and it has held up perfectly for 23 years.
If you are in need of a manual for it, I would be willing to scan mine and email it to you.
