    Reading this thread reminds me that I have an 80% jig I bought years ago and have no idea where it is.

    Last forever yes, but not scratch proof as one impatience guy learned that mistake by not waiting until the router stopped before pulling it out.

    I had the 5D as well and it is one super dooper awesome and easy jig, I don't need a drill press, my cordless ryobi is all I need for the first and only hole to start the milling with a router. Then the drill again for the fcg pins and the safety, done in less than 2 minutes.

    Always stop routing before pulling out. Or so I hear...
