"I cut several sets of HBDTs on the Leigh jig over the last two weeks. They come out great."

Same here, well 25 years ago. So the jig may have changed. Seemed like a bit of a kludge with the little blocks of wood, and it is the fixed angle. There are limits on spacing, and less glue surface due to the rounding.

Some nice antique furniture uses drawers the size of cigar boxes, with 1/4" sides, not even sure if you can do those. Seems unlikely. I have a punch through chisel I copied from the Hedley shop for the light stuff makes the light stuff really fast. And mostly used the Leigh when I first got it to bank out the heavier stuff for family furniture. A couple of desks I made. I was also asked by LV to demo it for one of my dovetail seminars. It is great for production but messing with set up didn't save me much speed in a hobby shop.
