I NEVER REALY COMMENT ON PRODUCTS UNLESS THEY ARE EXCEPTIONALLY GREAT OR VERY POOR SO THIS ITEM IS HARD TO JUDGE BUT HERE GOES.

I WAS IN MY OPINION UNFORTUNATE TO BE SEARCHING FOR A NEW ROUTER JIG FOR MY TRADE AS A CARPENTER WHEN I CAME ACROSS ONE ON EBAY FROM  the.chippy.shop THAT SEEMED TO TICK ALL THE RIGHT BOXES COMPACT, EASY TO USE, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT CRITERIA ACCURATE. I TOOK GREAT CARE IN READING THE FULL DISCRIPTION AND PANDERED ABOUT IT FOR A FEW DAYS THEN DOUBLE CHECKED BY READING AGAIN BEFORE COMMITTING MYSELF TO THAT BUY IT NOW. I THEN TOOK THAT NEXT STEP AND READ THE FEEDBACK WHICH WAS ALL POSSATIVE  SO WHAT WAS I HANGING ABOUT FOR I PRESSED THE BUTTON TO BUY THEN PAID STRAIGHT AWAY THROUGH PAYPAL THE DEAL WAS DONE THIS WAS THE START OF MY NIGHTMARE ALTHOUGH I ONLY FOUND THIS OUT WHEN THE ITEM WAS DELIVERED TO ME.

THE ITEM I RECIEVED WAS NOT THE ITEM PICTURED IN THE LISTING IT WAS ONE THAT ANOTHER USER HAD LISTED THAT AFTER A BIT OF RESEARCH TURNED OUT TO BE OWNED BY THE SAME PERSON . THE JIG I RECIEVED WAS TOTALLY DIFFERANT AND IN A BAD STATE OF DAMAGE I WAS LIVID SO CONTACTED THEM EXPLAINING THAT THEY HAD SENT THE WRONG ITEM BUT MY FAITH WAS RESTORED WHEN THEY PROMISSED TO SEND ME THE RIGHT ITEM OUT AND PICKUP THE WRONG ONE. WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS THE CORRECT ITEM ARRIVED AND ALL LOOKED WELL UNTIL I TRIED TO PUT IT TOGETHER I CAREFULLY READ THE INSTRUCTIONS (very poor photostat quality) BUT MANAGED TO GET THE JIG TOGETHER THEN I TRIED TO PUT THE HINGE PLATES IN THERE POSSITION (2 MISSING) BUT FOUND THAT THEY WOULD NOT GO IN THERE SLOTS THEY WAS TO BIG (SO NOT SO ACCURATE) I WAS LIVID

I CONTACTED THEM AGAIN BY PHONE AND OBVIOUSLY GOT THE COMPANY BULLY WHO TRIED THERE BEST TO FOB ME OFF FIRSTLY TELLING ME THE JIG ONLY CAME WITH 4 PLATES (eventhough the picture on the listing shown 6 p.s. there new listing show 4) BUT AFTER A LONG CONVERSATION ABOUT FALSE ADVERTISING THEY AGREED TO SEND ME A NEW SET OF PLATES AND I DID RECIEVE THEM BUT ONLY FOUR.

I ONCE GAIN ASSEMBLED THE JIG AND PUT IT TO USE TO FIND THAT IT WAS NOT ACCURATE

BUT AFTER MAKING SOME CHANGES TO THE JIG MYSELF I GOT A RESONABLE JOB DONE

HOWEVER I ONLY WISH I WOULD HAVE MISSED THERE LISTING IN THE FIRST PLACE
