need help with an accurate and affordable dovetail jig

Hi all,
I am new to LJ and I am amazed at the collective wealth of knowledge and experience here. I have been woodworking for just over a year and I am in the market for a good dovetail jig. Money is an issue, otherwise I would jump straight to the Leigh, so I am considering the Porter Cable 4212.
I think that I will mostly be routing half-blinds, but it doesn't seem like a tremendous price difference to go up to the through dovetail jigs.
Does anyone have any recommendations for an accurate and affordable jig?

Depends on what you want to do. For fixed space pins & tails you can do something like the MLCS Pins & Tails templates like I did. I would like one of those PC 4212s though. I see a lot of good write ups on them…
