Re: Tapered Pocket

So What I am hearing. Aspire is worth the upgrade, but would not be able to help with this type of Stock holder.

Re: Flat Table Dovetail Drawer System

I do not have away to hold material Vertically. I do have room in the table between structural supports to put a slot in the table. I would just need to make or find a way to hold the material while it is being cut. Does anyone have any ideas on good fixtures or jigs to hold the work?

Thanks Mike

Re: Dovetail Gadget

every thing fits nice an snug except for the little bump on the angle cuts. I think if I mess with the allowance or settings the joint will get sloppy.
