I'm testing one of these jigs...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jblqQX4F4ds

Ed was good enough to send me one to test and report after I try it. Wish I'd had it soon enough to use on the last 3 TDS , no fault of Ed's on that tho.

I'm impressed with it so far, all I've done is a mockup 2" wide with an awood block and a pair of maple 1x2s .

Here is data so far:

It came in closer than any jig I've used to date.

The drill holes were all the right sizes.

Ed has his own (I assume) insert system that used a 3/8" hole in limb that fits over a part of insert that comes out of riser and is 3/8" with a rounded beveled end on it so the bolt is rock solid.

[thumbsup] [thumbsup]

Getting some pics in order as I have time.....

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Oh, being made in USA and a very nice quality , Ed and I agreed there is not enough markup for me to carry them so I will just point folks to Ed to save them the markup and shipping I would have to make on them .

It really does look like a good tool to have, someday I will be able to afford one.

Thanks for the review Kenny.

I have some of the inserts coming. No doubt it will be better than the Bingham one.

I ordered that jig about a year and a half ago and it's worked great! I haven't had any issue. I may order some of those guide inserts to try out.

Kenny, I was impressed with the video too, so I emailed Ed on price etc. that was on August 16th, I haven't heard back from him. Do you have any idea what he is charging for the Jig?

I emailed him too, no response yet. Is the email address on the video a good one?

That's what I've been using for sometime now. I think it's the easiest and best thing since sliced bread. The inserts with the 3/8 neck are the only way to go. Awesome product all the way around. I use to stumble all over the hole drilling process. Not anymore though. [thumbsup]

Is this the one that OMC had for sale? It looks exactly like the one I ordered from OMC a year ago.
