Eagle America 445-7600 Professional Wide Capacity Self-Centering Dowel Jig

Bought this jig on amazon for $69.99. Did my first work with it yesterday and it is awesome. Loved it. We'll worth the money to me. Everything lined up perfectly when I assembled it and it was very easy to use. The only issues I have with it are: 1. The 7/16 and 1/2 holes are pre made and there is only one of each. I like using 1/2 dowels. I guess that's overkill. I switched to 3/8 yesterday and they seem plenty strong. 2. Wish they were spaced out a little farther. One side has the predrilled 7/16 and 1/2 holes. The other has the threaded holes for the other sizes. They were closer together than I typically put my dowels. I know I could move the jig but that kinda defeats the purpose. I wanted to be able to drill two holes without moving or measuring to save time. So, I used the holes provided and once again everything seems very strong. After changing what I normally do to fit what the jig could do, I still loved it.

Looking at the picture they have one of the arbors in the 1/2 predrilled holes. It is not threaded so the arbor moves freely. This would be nice for my spacing issue. I'll try it later and see how it works...

maybe one of these would work

If the holes are the same size, use the drill guide from this unit:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
