My father-in-law is a wonderful man. He’s 80 and still working. The other day he was cleaning out a basement for a customer and ran across this Mortise and Tenon Fixture. The customer said “throw it away”. He couldn’t bear to throw it away so he passed it on to me. Honestly I’ve never used one and don’t think I ever would. Anyone out there in the Lumberjocks community have experience(good or bad) with one of these things????

My experience with craftsman jigs has not been good, but you might as well read through the manual and check it out. It looks similar to other versions such as models from Trend and Leigh’s FMT.
It might be okay for occasional use.

Craftsman made all kinds of jigs similar to that during the 1960 and 70s. I have several that I never use any more. One is for cutting rope spirals on the lathe. They work but are certainly not for any kind of production work.

Good morning Kelster58, I have been looking for a manual for a Craftsman Mortise and Tenon Fixture, (model # 171.25467) and have been unable to find or locate a manual or a copy of one. I’ve been guided to your post via to my recent post. This is my post,

“HELP Needed”! Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, here’s my dilemma; a few decades ago I purchased a Craftsman Industrial Mortise and Tenon Fixture (model # 25467). I’ve never used this jig nor has it ever been assembled. I always had kept all my manuals of any products I owned in binders and somewhat organized, however the binders were destroyed in a theft. I recently was going to attempt to use this jig and have searched everywhere for a manual, without any luck. If the jig was assembled I’d be able to figure it out, but as I had stated it’s never been assembled, in fact the parts are still in the original plastic. Thus my dilemma, I’m in SERIOUS NEED of the Manual for this jig. I’ve tried Sears, it shows the fixture however it’s listed as model #171.25467 and the description in a “Panel Decorator” and it shows a manual as, Mortise and Tenon Jig Owner’s Manual Part # 90033 and is unavailable. Does anyone know where or how I may acquire a manual? Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks Delno

Is there a possibility of acquiring a copy of your manual?

I have such instruction manual but I to have a problem I’m missing two pieces. Item #129 looks like a triangle piece with three slots equally spaced around edge and large hole in center. Item 108 alignment bushing which fit inside triangle piece and has a 1/4 hole or close to it in center. Don’t know your skill set but would like all dimension of each item so I can duplicate them. Are you able to do that in return? This manual is 93 pages and not sure how to help you maybe scan and fax. Flash drive?
