You will want to have the jig very firmly secured to a stable surface and at a good height for working. There are T tracks on the bottom of the jig and you can use these for bolts to attach the jig. I have two holes drilled in my bench (sacrilege!). I run the bolts through and use a pair of threaded knobs to secure the jig. Sets up quick and it rock solid stable. It would be nice if it was a bit higher.

One piece of advice. Get the vacuum and router support accessory. Without it all of the chips and sawdust are thrown right back at you. If you want to get down for a good look you had better have a good pair of goggles on. The vacuum and router support works great. Go to the Leigh web site to watch a video. The jig really does help support the router making it easier to control. The dust collection feature is fantastic. No more lengthy shop cleanup and time wasted getting wood chips out of your tee shirt.
