Easiest tenons ever
Took my time on the setup, cut one test tenon to dial it in, then cut 8 tenons that were 1" thick, 3 1/4" long, and 1 1/2" deep that were all spot on. The only thing I did to them was chamfer the edges. The time saving alone was worth the price.

Near perfect with one glaring flaw
This is by far the best tenoning jig on the market. Follow the directions and setup is easy and flawless. It is easy to dial in the settings to get perfect, repeatable, tenons every time.
I cut a set of gauges from HDPE to use in place of the actual chisel for set up and they work great and are more convenient.
The reason for 4 stars is the clamp. It's like sticking a VW engine in a Rolls Royce automobile. Unless you hold it all just right the clamp slips making it difficult to move quickly from one side to the other or to the next board.
I replaced the clamp with a Strong Hand UD65 using a small HDPE spacer under the end that attaches to the jig. This clamp is already drilled where it attaches to the jig. You just need to drill it out to remove the threads. With the new clamp this jig is worth ten stars.

Generally High Marks
The unit is solid, well-built and operates smoothly. It takes a bit of work to get it set for the machine and blade in my case I had to heat the runners with a blowtorch in order to break the set screws loose to adjust them to fit my Powermatic tablesaw miter slots. Some additional tweaking is required to get it truly "zeroed" out. It is straight forward and operates well from that point.

My only quibble is the work piece hold down clamp. It operates much as a bar clamp but has a swivel elbow in it that causes it to flex when tightened. Since the rubber clamp pad is then skew slightly to the workpiece it tends to want to walk off or twist the workpiece. My situation might be somewhat unique in that I use it to tenon a 3" wide guitar neck that is 1" thick. You might not experience it as a problem if the wide part of the workpiece were against the fence as would be more normal in standard construction.
