Record Marples M148 Doweling Jig
Since I bought the brilliant Festool Domino, this Doweling jig hasn't had a look in. It served me well for years, building my first pieces of furniture. It's pretty much the best doweling jig you can get. Much better than the modern rip offs. It comes with instructions, all the associated bits and a pack of dowels to get you going.
The No. 148 Dowelling Jig was first listed in a publicity leaflet in 1971 and listed as patent pending. The No. 148 was supplied with ¼" and 3/8" drill bushes with two standard slide rods accepting boards up to 6" wide. Additional bushes 5/16" and rods 12" and 18" capacity were also available. 1973 saw the Record Dowelling jig No. 148 re-numbered to M148 when Marples became part of Record Marples (Woodworking Tools) LTD.1972. The M148 came complete with a detailed instruction manual. Six pairs of metric and imperial hardened steel drill bushes ¼", 5/16", 3/8", 6mm, 8mm and 10mm with 6" slide rods and a separate G-Cramp. Additional slide rods were also available in sizes 12", 18", 30", and 36". Extra bush carriers and fence were also available, enabling extra dowel holes to be drilled. The Record-Marples Dowelling Jig No. M148 will cope with virtually every application where a dowel joint is suitable. Fully adjustable in all directions, it is also a very easy jig to use with no marking out necessary. The last listing I can find of the No. M148 is in the catalogue of 1993 but it is not in every catalogue from 1972 to 1993.
