The FMT Pro produces an incredible range of joint sizes and types. You can rout 68 sizes of standard inch joints from 1/16" x 1/8" up to 1/2" x 5" using 21 standard guides and one or two Leigh bits. Custom joint sizes up to 1/2" x 5" can also be achieved. Plus angled mortise and tenon joints are a breeze with this machine. Virtually every plunge router is compatible and does not need to be permanently dedicated to this machine.
Mortise & tenon joints routed on the FMT Pro are remarkably strong and virtually indestructible. This centuries-old joint is the thoroughbred of all woodworking joints and is used in fine furniture and cabinetmaking everywhere. You can easily make tables, chairs, beds, cabinets and many other stunning pieces.
No other mortise & tenon jig offers the incredible range of joinery options possible with the FMT Pro.
SINGLE, DOUBLE-TWIN, DOUBLE-IN-LINE, QUADRUPLE, TRIPLE, ANGLED TENONS, THROUGH TENONS, RAISED THROUGH TENONS, RAIL AND STILE JOINERY, BRIDLE JOINTS – STANDARD, BRIDLE JOINTS – MITERED, FLOATING TENONS, HAUNCHED JOINTS, ASYMMETRIC TENONS, DIFFERENT WORKPIECE THICKNESSES and DOWEL JOINTS.
The FMT Pro is designed for use by woodworkers of all levels. Leigh has made perfect joinery easy in every way, from thorough, step-by-step user guides, bulletins and how-to videos, to personalized customer service, with instant toll-free technical support and a help line.
The FMT Pro routs both the mortise and matching tenon, with just one joint guide, one router bit and one jig setup. The basic concept is simple. The universal sub-base with your mounted router is positioned on the jig table. It has two guide pins projecting from the bottom of the base. The right-hand pin always runs in the track to the right of the bit opening. The left-hand pin steers the router, traveling around the joint guide to rout the tenon, or in the joint guide center slot to rout the mortise.
