General’s jig system streamlines cabinet face frame and doors production

The new Professional Face Frame Jig System from General Tools & Instruments allows woodworkers and cabinetmakers to create a production setup in just minutes for the fast and precise fabrication and assembly of cabinet face frames and doors, according to the company.

Wood frame and door components can be aligned, securely clamped, bored for pocket holes and screwed together in one operation. This patented, one-of-a-kind system saves time and increases productivity by eliminating the need for separate drilling and assembly operations and delivering repeatable, professional results.

General’s Professional Face Frame Jig System accommodates stock from 1-1/4” to 2-1/2” wide and 3/4” to 1” thick. It offers pocket hole spacing adjustment from 3/4” to 1-1/2” for maximum joint strength, according to the company.

The system includes two 20”slotted T-track rails; two pre-assembled clamp mount jigs for clamping work pieces and boring the pocket holes; two cam-locking carriage stop clamps for repositioning the jigs in subsequent drilling positions; one step drill bit with adjustable stop collar and hex wrench for boring the pocket holes, and one pack of 100 self-tapping, 1-1/4” fine-threaded fasteners.

A Face Frame Single Jig System is also available.
