dovetail jig question......

I am a totally new at

Will a 1/2" bit work for both a 1/2" and 7/16" jig.

(I inherited my dads old jig, a sears/roebuck model. After many runs with it and finding out that the joints were not meeting properly, I realized the offset was a 1/2" and the spacing was 7/16" on the jig. Apparently there was a piece or two missing and I cannot get parts for at another.)

So, back to my question.....Thank you.....I'm learning.....FYI: I have all the various guide collars.

The jig does not care what the shaft diameter is of the bit.
