Does anyone use a self centering jig on their router to make mortises? I am looking for one and cannot find anything, I know they exist.
Or ... what else can anyone recommend?

arnold build you a base plate for the router
simular to this one.

If the thickness of your wood is 3/4" then
the distance between the 2 pins should be
1 1/2" ~ 1 3/4"

Hi, What would be the reasoning behind (If the thickness of your wood is 3/4" then the distance between the 2 pins should be 1 1/2" ~ 1 3/4")

I get the two pins, but as for the thickness of the material I'm at a bit of a loss.

thanks for this david i might try this one. i guess i should have been more clear because i saw another kind of self centering that had something like parallelogram wooden slats wear the pins are and these sortof clamped to the wood.
i cannot remember where i saw it but i wondered if anyone had ever seen such a rig it looked pretty good and secure for cutting mortisses
