Format: Hardcover
I have many books on making jigs and fixtures for shop tools. Without a doubt this is the best one I have come accross. I have made and used the fixtures in this book. They are GREAT.
Not only that the book only cost $... US .... What a bargin. I have paid twice the price at other places for what I thought were good practical projects and this book beats them all. Get your hands on a copy and you won't be sorry.

Format: Paperback
For anyone new to shop work this book will be of value. If you have already been making things to get a job done (i.e. jigs, fixtures, hold downs, third hands, etc.) you are way beyond this book. The number and kinds of fixtures and jigs presented here is very limited. Among the things missing is a basic fixture for cutting tapers on a table saw.

Covered much the same as other jig books. Was looking for some insight, but this is just a re-hash. Descriptions were vague, and instructions hard to follow.
