Dowel jig holder,
This review is from: Wolfcraft B4640 Dowelmaster (DIY & Tools)
I have never used one of these devices before and spent an entire afternoon working out how to use it. Eventually I thought I had cracked it, set up a trial piece of timber, applied the jig to a marked point with one hand and with the other applied my electric drill to the hole in the jig with care.
It was not enough though as once the drill (bought specially for the job) touched the wood, it jerked the jig almost out of my hand.
I stopped immediately, abandoned the jig and within an hour made myself a couple of matching jigs with three holes for the joint in question. I was able to clamp these in position and drill in safety.
I could be at fault with this product because of my lack of familiarity with it but it was not intuitive enough for me to risk a sprained wrist by trying again.
