Before I bought the tennoning jig from Woodcraft that jbergrestrom suggested I had a shop made one like cephus suggested. I couldn't get my tennoning jig to zero out on my 3650 either. This was a couple years ago, but, as I recall, I called the manufacturer and was told the jig would not zero on the 3650. I cut a few tennons with it and now it sits in the corner collecting dust. When I cut tennons on my table saw I use my old shopmade jig with a couple clamps and it still works great. Lately though I have been using my Dowelmax. It is much faster than cutting mortise and tennons but it does have limitations. I certainly wouldn't use it to make an exterior door, I am afraid the joints would fail prematurely.
Exactly. While I have nothing whatsoever against commercial jigs, it just seems like there are a lot of people out there who have a lot more dollars than sense, at least in the belief that everything out there has to be store-bought to be useful.
We're supposed to be woodworkers, why is it so hard to actually... work with wood?
