I purchased a dowel joint jig and am a little confused. I get that people may want to use various sized dowels, but why have 4 different sizes on one jig rather than have 4 of the same size (i.e. 3/8 " or such). It seems like a lot of clamping and moving to make just one hole at a time. Is there a reasonably priced jig that has the option of using 3 or 4 of the same dowel sizes on it?

Thanks

I use dowel pegs, when I can, in glue-ups to get useful sized pieces of wood for carvings. I have several sets of those little aluminum plugs that fit in one set of holes with center points to mark the locations in the next piece of wood. Maybe not exquisite accurate but that may be more an issue of my sloppy hole boring.
