My Personal Banggood favorites all time!
1. Doweling Jig / Multi row puncher
3. Drill guide cabinet jig
5. Precision square
8. Miter square brass
7. Height gauge
The material used for my workbench and this platform is Black MDF:
Black MDF, something similar to Valchromat. I get it from here: (Netherlands)
Here is a list of viewer’s suggestions where you can buy Black MDF or Valchromat or Forescolor.
NSW Australia, Laminex has the black MFD
A few products from this review were sent to me by Banggood for testing.
This does not mean that I do get all my products. I review also a lot of products I bought myself.
I started these reviews because from my experience not every tool from China was worth buying. So I wanted to make in-depth reviews to show you which products you should consider and which product you better leave alone. The fact that Banggood sent me products occasionally does not change the way I make my reviews. I still give in-depth reviews and give you my honest opinion!
On this, you can count on!
I have a good experience with Banggood.com and they have a lot of woodworking tools nicely organized on their site.
My name is Dennis and I am from Hooked on Wood.

Thank you for viewing.
hi.. thank you for sharing good information.. may i know what the name is this?
Nice jig. What is the distance between the holes?
And what does the Letter A and B which is marked near the Line of digits mean? In your example you used the hole with the thickness of 23,5 mm. That line of digits is marked with the letter B. What does the letter B mean?
There is a second line of digits which is marked with the letter A. In your case it is 15,5. What does this stand for?
Secondly it is a bmmer one cannoth buy 3mm m14 which would fit with ikea products.
Is there another name for the "corpus connection" ? Because I’d like to find some parts for that where I live and when I google corpus connection I find no results and so I cannot translate it to my language cause I can’t even find it in English. Thank you 🙂
Thank you for the great product reviews Dennis. I have been looking forward to buying this jig since you first recommended it here, but was holding off because of the cost…until recently. I finally ordered it! but when it arrived all the parts had fallen out of their slots in the foam and banged around, scratching up and damaging the jig. I contacted banggood support and have had a negative experience trying to get it replaced. They have offered very small ammounts of refund ($6, then $12) but what I want is an undamaged jig. I’m hesitant to choose that over a refund though, because who is to say that it won’t happen again? I’m assuming they will package the new one the same as before. Customer "service" has been a huge hassle and is spoiling banggood for me. I’m very disappointed.
Can this jig be used with 12mm and 16mm thick boards? Also could you screw in 6mm guide holes / bushings instead of the 8mm ones?
This is a good jig, although it’s £100 now (thanks Brexit) and shows it doesn’t need to be self centering, just from the same datum, like the domino.
Thanks so much for this review – I wish I’d known about this jig before I spent plenty on a JessEm system, which is good, but can’t reference off an edge like this does. Just for the record, Wnew do also sell additional drill bushings in a selection of sizes, so it is possible to switch over to 6mm or 10mm dowels if needed.
Very nice video about doweling jig. But if you want to dowel a piece a wood in the middle of another you use the marking point of the jig to allign the jig with the line but the dowel in the side of material is not in the middle because is not a self centering jig.Practically you align the dowel itself with tle line.
If you use the flat side of router base there is the possibility / high likelihood of binding the bit!
Too bad it’s made in China. I’ll buy American, thanks.
Where to buy it in india
NOw that is cool and really good router point I have never thought of.
The video and the product are both excellent. I bought a jig and I’m using it more and more. Yet I have a question : can anyone give a tip as to how to set the depth for the drill ? I do it in a much akward way…
Thanks in advance for sharing if you do

Which would you say is better and why please? This doweling tool of the Drill Pro3? I currently use a "DowelMax" and while it is good, I am always looking for something is better at making dowels. Thank you very much. Tony
I purchased this dowel jig based on your video and recommendation, Dennis how do you use this to do rail and stiles? I cannot see how to line up the marks on wood that is only two inches wide. Can this Jig be used to do frames and rail and stile doors?
We don’t have metric dowels in any stores.
Asking because I’m clueless. Does this work with 12mm or 15mm plywood as well?
What is missing is the 45deg adapter that you can get with the Dowel Max to use dowels on a table/bench waterfall mitre joint
Long time ago I bought a large plug-in Mikita router. There were 2 options on this router base at the time – square or round. I bought the square base and quickly became very conscious of drifting along a fence. Note to self, “get the round base next time”. My newer routers have a flat side that I use when changing bits, but otherwise I don’t see much advantage to having a flat side on a router base
Hey. Thank you for this. I’ve just ordered the smaller dowel jig part. I would love a Domino but I’m never going to be able to justify one. This really sparked my interest. I presume the extension/spacer bar corresponds to the same dimensions in the longer jig??
Remember people who are watching would like prices.Bottom line
Hi Dennis love your china tools videos. Out of this jig and the red dowel jig you reviewed in ep 8 which one would you rather have in your workshop.
Your Dinglish is one of those rare cases, where it actually is totally not irritating.
Compared to the average American from the southern states, I prefer yours any day!
As always a great review, my first source when I am looking to buy a new tool. To save me going back over the videos, what episode do your tools change from Makita to Festool? 😀
I agree it is a great combination for joining cabinetry panels, but may also be used to create an MFT table top by precisely placing holes with just the tip of the drill bit indenting the surface and going back with a 20 mm brad point drill bit in a portable drill press to complete the holes and the rows can be set precisely square.
Great video and superb channel. Thank you Denis. Quick question about the multi row puncher, is it spaced based on the 32mm system? cheers
what is the hole spacing on the dowel jig?
Thank you for the videos!
Have you ever tried the 3 in 1 adustable doweling jig from Drillpro? It comes with more interesting features, but is also more expensive.
I’d be interested in your opinion
Hi Dennis, well done on your channel !!
Are the dowel jig and the shelf jig still available. Can’t see any link in descriptions
The link doesn’t bring up the Multi Row Puncher. Has it been discontinued?
Denis, I just ordered one thanks to your review. But until it arrived (2-3 weeks ) I watch again and again your video and I don t understand why are 2 rows of number (A and B). I understand if the wood have 18 mm thick you put the bushings in the 18 mm hole but near the 18 mm is another number. Why? Thank you
I give this Video a 5 Star Rating- 5 for presentation, 5 for knowledge of equipment utilized, 5 for entertainment value. I just screwed up a project by drilling one wrong hole- so the dowel went in crooked- I resolved it but this longer dowel device sure would’ve come in handy- I think I’ll buy myself one for Christmas.
Hi Dennis, thank you for your videos. You mentioned about using the multirow jig to drill adjustable shelves.
Does that mean that the shelf plug need to be 8mm diameter ? Seems big to me… Do you need to buy additional pieces to drill at lower diameters for that use? Thanks a lot for your answer
Thank you for the routing tip👍👍
Thanks! You saved me from wanting a $1200.00 Festoon 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Does anyone with the jig already have any idea of the external screw thread size of the bushings (or to put it another way, "what size thread will the bushing holes accept) as I’m looking for a 5mm set to allow it to be used for standard 5mm shelf pins. I’ve found a set with a M14 thread, but not sure if these will fit the jig and long bar. Any information appreciated. 👍
Another helpful, well-thought-out, and much appreciated review!
A very good jig for building carcasses and shelving using standard thickness plywood. Not well-suited to joinery projects with thicker stock and/or narrow boards, such as table legs, rails and aprons, picture frames, etc.
How far apart are the holes on the multi-row puncher? Do they allow you to make holes that follow the 32mm cabinetry standard?
Hey Denis can you please check the link for the doweling jig. They sent to me a completely wrong product 😢
I won’t buy from Banggood anymore. Ripped off too many times. I bought this jig on AliExpress. Then at least I can clearly see what I am buying.
it may be "amazing" but is it accurate and will it last a lifetime? great, informative video—always nice to see a different view —thanx rick
Hi Dennis, because of this Video I bought this Doweling Jig und built 2 custom Kitchen Cabinets with it. I have many years professionally installed kitchens and am therefore particularly critical. But I must say that the Doweling Jig has really convinced me. So thanky you for this Video. I wisch you and your Familiy a merry Christmas. Greetings from the german North Sea Coast.
As a newbie, I automatically used the round side on my router. I love your content, keep up the good work.
Hi love your channel and have baught this one, i found i love it even though i am a festool man :-). it does have one flaw, the two plates should have been the same thickness, one have to ajust clamp and dept all the time. would you agree and perhaps inform design department 🙂
Greetings from Canada! Just wanted to say that I really appreciate your videos. Very detailed and precise testing that gives me confidence in your conclusions. I have since opened my mind to some of the Banggood products. As a new woodworker, I can use any savings I can get for tools that work well.
Thanks again and keep up the great work!
After watching this video I bought the dowel jig, it arrived today, way ahead of schedule but so far I haven’t had a chance to use it. I can comment, however, on the absolute top-quality materials, workmanship and presentation of this jig – all outstanding. I am looking forward to using this dowel jig, it really does look and feel that good, thanks for the heads-up Denis.
Yo la compré y es realmente asombrosa, 100% recomendada
