American Woodworker Magazine Test Report
American Woodworker Magazine tested the Katie Jig for accuracy in January 1998.
Ellis Walentine, Executive Editor, wrote "Our overall impression was that the jig is a potentially big winner--great value for the price."
Paul Anthony, Shop Manager, says "In it's favor, this jig produces nice joints, and it's a plus that the tails and pins for each joint can be cut with one setup. It's a well made, sturdy unit that's likely to last a lifetime."
