Not to hijack this…

You can minimize error by using a height gauge or other very accurate means of setting bit height. Just write down your measurements. Committing to memory is a sure failure.

Have you been to E-bay? Leigh jigs come up pretty often. D4R’s are pretty common. The D4R Pro allows single pass blind dovetails is the only difference I can see. Single pass dovetails are not able to be custom spaced, so you wind up with pretty symetrical looking dovetails. There’s nothing wrong with these but that’s all you can cut single pass. Bit depth here is very critical.

IMO, don’t buy any “kit” or accessory “package” for bits. You’ll get bits you will never use and pay for them.
