1. ALWAYS USE EYE PROTECTION WHEN USING POWER
TOOLS. WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES THAT COMPLY TO
ANSI 287.1.
2. WARNING: ALWAYS UNPLUG DRILL FROM POWER SUPPLY
WHEN CHANGING BITS AND ATTACHING DRILL STOPS.
BEFORE YOU GET STARTED
1. Practice drilling dowel holes and making joints in scrap
pieces of wood to get familiar with the dowel jig.
2. Make all markings on the boards exactly as described in the
instructions to avoid drilling in the wrong locations.
3. Avoid drilling holes too deep.
4. Before gluing dowels, fit the pieces together to make sure
you are satisfied with the line up.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR
EDGE-TO-EDGE JOINTS
1. Place boards that you want to join
in the final position and mark them
“A” and “B” (See Figure 1).
2. Now position the boards so the
surfaces to be joined face you.
Using a square, align the edges of
the boards (See Figure 2). NOTE:
To fit in the jig, the combined
width of both boards must not
exceed 4 inches. When the
combined width exceeds 4 inches,
only one board can be in the jig at
a time (See Figure 2).
3. Once aligned, use a clamp to
secure the boards.
4. Using the square again, mark a
line across both boards at the
locations you want to drill dowel
holes (See Figure 3).
5. Open the CLAMP SCREW (B) on
the jig wide enough to fit over the
boards.
6. Place the FIXED JAW (C) of the jig
against the side of board “A” and
align the center of the INDEX MARK
(D) with one of the lines marked on
the boards. (See Figure 4)
7. Gently tighten CLAMP SCREW (B).
8. Loosen SLIDE LOCK SCREW (E)
and move SLIDE (F) along the
SCALE ROD (G) until centered on
board “A”. Use the graduations
marked on the SCALE ROD (G) to
center the SLIDE (F) (See Figure 5).
Once aligned, tighten SLIDE LOCK
SCREW (E).

EXAMPLE: If both of the boards to be joined are each one inch
thick, move the SLIDE (F) so the arrow aligns with the 1/2"
graduation on the SCALE ROD (G) to drill the first hole. Then
move the SLIDE (F) so the arrow aligns with the 1-1/2"
graduation on the SCALE ROD (G) to drill the second hole.
9. Lift TURRET (H) and turn until the correct size hole is aligned
with the INDEX MARK (D). The TURRET (H) will snap into
place when properly located.
10. ENSURE THE DRILL IS TURNED OFF. Place a depth stop
collar on the drill bit at the proper depth to drill the first hole.
NOTE: Position the collar to allow for TURRET (H) height as
well as desired depth of hole.
11. Ensure SLIDE (F) is locked at
proper position and drill dowel
hole in board “A”. The hole in the
TURRET (H) will help you keep
the drill straight (See Figure 6).
12. Loosen SLIDE LOCK SCREW (E)
and move SLIDE (F) until
positioned at board “B” center
location.
13. Tighten SLIDE LOCK SCREW (E)
Figure 6
and drill hole in board “B” .
14. With clamp in place, loosen the jig CLAMP SCREW (B) and
move the jig so the next marked location on the boards
aligns with the INDEX MARK (D) on the jig.
15. Gently tighten the CLAMP SCREW (B) and repeat steps 8-14
until all dowel holes are drilled.
16. Apply glue to the dowel pins and
insert them in the holes in board
“A”. Align the holes in board “B”
with dowel pins connect boards
“A” and “B” to make the joint
(See Figure 7).

INSTRUCTION FOR USE OF
DOWEL CENTERS
These dowel centers help to make it easy to precisely align the
holes of two pieces of stock to be joined by a doweled joint—
for example, a shelf and each of its supports. They can be used
in conjunction with a dowel jig to show where the joining holes
need to be drilled.
Drill one set of holes with a diameter of 1/4'', 5/16'', 3/8''
or 1/2'' in one piece of stock (see photo). Slip the dowel centers
of corresponding diameter into the holes, with the sharp points
facing out. Then align the two pieces of stock by hand and press
them together. The sharp points will leave marks on the second
piece of stock indicating exactly where to drill the second set of
holes.
To remove the dowel centers, hit the other side of the stock
with a rubber mallet.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR T-BUTT JOINTS
NOTE: When using this jig to make T-Butt joints, the width of
either surface to be drilled cannot exceed 4 inches.
1. Place boards you want to join in
the final position and mark them
“A” and “B”. Use a square to align
the two boards and mark a line
along the edge of board “A” on
the short side of board “B” (See
Figure 8).
Figure 8
2. Flip board “A” flat so it lies on
board “B”. Use a square to ensure
the edges are still aligned (See
Figure 9). Clamp the boards
together.
3. Use the square to mark the edge
of board “A” and the surface of
Figure 9
board “B” to be drilled at all
desired dowel pin locations
(See Figure 9).
4. Remove the clamp and place board “A” in the jig as detailed
in “HOW TO MAKE EDGE-TO-EDGE JOINTS”, steps 5-7.
5. Drill holes in board “A” at all desired locations. Follow steps
8-15 in “HOW TO MAKE EDGE-TO-EDGE JOINTS.”
6. Remove board “A” from the jig once all holes are drilled.
7. Open the CLAMP SCREW (B) on the jig wide enough to fit over
the board “B” with surface to be drilled facing up.
8. Place the FIXED JAW (C) of the jig
against the side of board “B” that
is closer to the marked line from
step 1. Align the center of the
INDEX MARK (D) with one of the
lines marked, from step 3, on the
board. (See Figure 10)
Figure 10

9. Loosen SLIDE LOCK SCREW (E)
and, starting from the marked
line on board “B”, move the
SLIDE (F) along the SCALE ROD
(G) until the distance the SLIDE
(F) is away from the line is half
the thickness of board “A”. Use
Figure 11
the graduations marked on the
SCALE ROD (G) for measuring (See Figure 11).
Once aligned, tighten SLIDE LOCK SCREW (E).
10. Lift TURRET (H) and turn until the correct size hole is
aligned with the INDEX MARK (D). The TURRET (H) will snap
into place when properly located.
11. ENSURE THE DRILL IS TURNED OFF. Place a depth stop
collar on the drill bit at the proper depth to drill the first hole.
NOTE: Position the collar to allow for TURRET (H) height as
well as desired depth of hole.
12. Ensure SLIDE (F) is locked at
proper position and drill dowel
hole in board “B”. The hole in the
TURRET (H) will help you keep
the drill straight (See Figure 12).
13. With clamp in place, loosen the
jig CLAMP SCREW (B) and move
the jig so the next marked
location on the board aligns with
the INDEX MARK (D) on the jig.
Figure 12
14. Gently tighten the CLAMP SCREW
(B) and repeat steps 8-13 until all
dowel holes are drilled.
15. Apply glue to the dowel pins and
insert them in the holes in board
“A” . Align the holes in board “B”
with dowel pins connect boards
“A” and “B” to make the joint
Figure 13
(See Figure 13).

INSTRUCTIONS FOR
CORNER JOINTS
NOTE: When using this jig to make
corner joints, the width of either
surface to be drilled cannot exceed
4 inches.
1. Place boards you want to join in
the final position and mark them
“A” and “B”. Use a square to
Figure 14
ensure proper alignment
(See Figure 14).
2. Flip board “A” flat so it lies on
board “B”. Use a square to ensure
the edges are still aligned
(See Figure 15). Clamp the boards
together.
3. Use the square to mark the edge
Figure 15
of board “A” and the surface of
board “B” to be drilled at all
desired dowel pin locations
(See Figure 16).
4. Remove the clamp and place
board “A” in the jig as detailed in
“HOW TO MAKE EDGE-TO-EDGE
JOINTS”, steps 5-7.
Figure 16
5. Drill holes in board “A” at all desired locations.
Follow steps 8-15 in “HOW TO MAKE EDGE-TO-EDGE
JOINTS.”
6. Remove board “A” from the jig once all holes are drilled.
7. Open the CLAMP SCREW (B) on the jig wide enough to fit over
the board “B” with surface to be drilled facing up.
8. Place the FIXED JAW (C) of the jig
against the side of board “B” that
is closest to the marked lines from
step 3. Align the center of the
INDEX MARK (D) with one of the
lines marked, from step 3, on the
board. (See Figure 17)
Figure 17
10
9. Loosen SLIDE LOCK SCREW (E)
and move the SLIDE (F) along the
SCALE ROD (G) until the distance
the SLIDE (F) is away from the
edge is half the thickness of board
“A”, Use the graduations marked
on the SCALE ROD (G) for
measuring (See Figure 18),
Figure 18
Once aligned, tighten SLIDE
LOCK SCREW (E).
10. Lift TURRET (H) and turn until the correct size hole is aligned
with the INDEX MARK (D), The TURRET (H) will snap into
place when properly located.
11. ENSURE THE DRILL IS TURNED OFF. Place a depth stop
collar on the drill bit at the proper depth to drill the first hole,
NOTE: Position the collar to allow
for TURRET (H) height as well as
desired depth of hole.
12. Ensure SLIDE (F) is locked at
proper position and drill dowel
hole in board “B”, The hole in the
TURRET (H) will help you keep
the drill straight (See Figure 19).
13. With clamp in place, loosen the
jig CLAMP SCREW (B) and move
the jig so the next marked
Figure 19
location on the board aligns with
the INDEX MARK (D) on the jig,
14. Gently tighten the CLAMP SCREW (B) and repeat steps 8–13
until all dowel holes are drilled,
15. Apply glue to the dowel pins and insert them in the holes in
