There are Jigs I buy and jigs I would like to buy but can’t justify the cost. Here is an example:

$70.00 seemed a bit much for some plastic and a couple clamps.

Here is my version. Picked up the toggle clamp and bag of knobs for less than $20. Works just great for routing end grain straight and hassle free.

I own a Jessem dowling jig which is high quality and worth the cost, should last a lifetime. I consider it a tool. Circle jigs for the bandsaw and router are shop made. All you need is to keep some scraps, screws and knobs around the shop.

I live way out in the middle of nowhere, so if I need a jig I usually make one.
