    General Tools & Instruments Professional Face Frame Jig System

    General Tools & Instruments' Professional Face Frame Jig System enables woodworkers and cabinet makers to quickly create a production setup for the assembly of cabinet face frames and doors. Wood frame and door components can be aligned, securely clamped, bored for pocket holes and screwed together in one operation. The system is offered in one of two formats: a single jig system or a double jig system. The double jig system includes two 20 in. 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, a one-step drill bit with adjustable stop collar and hex wrench for boring the pocket holes, one pack of 100 self-tapping fine threaded fasteners (1¼ in.) for fastening the frames, and a #2 square-drive screwdriver bit (6 in.) to drive the self-tapping fasteners. The single jig system offers the same components except it includes just one T-track rail and one clamp mount jig. General’s Professional Face Frame Jig System accommodates stock from 1¼ in. to 2½ in. wide and 3/4 in. to 1 in. thick. It offers pocket hole spacing adjustment from 3/4 in.to 1½ in. for maximum joint strength.
