At 300 dollars I must be missing something. Can you post the model number so I can do some real pricing information. You jig seem over priced but I’m not sure if I’m comparing apples to apples. Amazon is showing under 200 dollars brand new.

You can’t get this jig from amazon currently. The jigs that they are selling are the 4210, 4212, 4216 (all of which are 12” models without any of the advanced features for repeatability and accuracy), and the 77240 (which is a 24” for $800).

I have owned the 4212 and quickly discovered that I wanted to cut dovetails on wider boards than 12” and the 24” mode that I really wanted was out of my price range.

The $180 jig on amazon is the 4216. Once again it is a 12” model without the bit depth tool on top or the other useful features.

Amazon used to sell my model at around $450. My model is the 55160.

According to the camel site, average price for it is right around $400 new. Highest was $429, and lowest was under $250. It is no longer listed on the PC site, so apparently has been discontinued. Parts/service might be hit or miss – Black and Decker (current owner of PC AFAIK) is not all that good at maintaining parts beyond product life or warranty.

Cheers,

I believe so. I have not had the need to have it serviced or replace parts. But I found some links that may be helpful.

Porter cable site to order accessories:

Site to order replacement parts:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/porter-cable-55160-type-1634-omnijig-joinery-system-parts-c-129_1882_16569.html

Site that sells the jig for $438.75
http://www.toolorbit.com/porter-cable/porter-cable-55160.html

Hopefully this helps
