General Tools & Instruments continues to grow and enhance its EZ Pro line of precision wood-joining jigs to provide cost-effective, innovative and unrivaled tools capable of producing professional level dovetail, box, mortise and tenon, pocket hole and dowel joints. With the addition of a router or drill, General’s new jigs enable woodworkers to produce professional joints right out of the box.

The newly updated EZ ProDovetailer II Jig enables woodworkers to produce half-blind or through dovetail joints or box joints using only your router. Its self-aligning design ensures that both ends of the dovetail joint match up evenly every time. New features include a stabilizer foot that provides better control of cuts and an enhanced clamping system with three-point knobs that improves torque and grip. It also more firmly secures wood in the jig, has improved plastic guides that produce more accurate cuts; and has new markings clearly that indicate which side to use for which cut.

The new EZ Pro Mortise & Tenon Jig is an all-in-one solution to cutting a matching mortise and tenon, says the company. Using a plunge router, woodworkers can cut both mortises and tenons ranging from 1/4” to 1/2” thick and from 1” to 3” long. The jig can handle stock ranging from 1/2” to 1-1/2” thick and can cut multiple mortises in a single, long piece. The body is made of solid, heat-treated, high-grade aluminum. Integrated clamps and swing arms secure and align wood for accurate joints.

The new EZ Pro Deluxe Pocket Hole Jig Kit enables woodworkers to quickly produce sturdy, attractive pocket hole joints in three types: flush, corner and angle. The jig features a tri-lobe knob for easier tightening and improved clamping torque. By drilling steeply pitched counterbores in one joint member, users can drive self-tapping screws into the other joint member without pilot holes. A hard, molded carrying case safely and securely stores the jig and all of the included accessories. The jig is ideal for making leg and rail joints, table and leg joints, cabinets and picture frames.
