Hey all relatively new here. I got an email from Rockler with for a PC 690 Lr and a 4210 dovetail jig for 199.98. Just wondering if this is a good deal. I have a Skil router and looking to upgrade to a better router. At this time I dint have a need fir a dovetail jig but eventually will as I learn. Is this worth jumping on?

It looks like it already sold out. I don’t know if that means the end of that deal, or if they’re getting some more in.

It’s an ok deal; nothing special as the router goes on sale for $99 pretty often and the 4210 jig sometimes the same.

If it was the 4212 jig and router I’d be all over it since it includes the extra template.

As is though, I’d skip it. If you planned on spending $200 on a router, you can get a pretty nice kit at that price that has a fixed and plunge base.
