Easy Dovetail Maker

Post by jimandi5000 »

Hi All,

I posted this inside another chain so I thought it may have gotten lost in the mix. My mill supports milling to the end of the broad (see pictures below) I have completed a the Easy Dovetail Maker. I know not everyone's mill supports this type of milling, but for those who have mills that can, have a look and let me know your thoughts.

Hi
I will try this gadget as soon i get some time over. I cut lot of dovetails by hand, combined with router.
On my diy-CNC it is possible to mount the tails standing. But i dont have the clamping finnished yet.
It looks great!
Is it possible to make the tails in diffrent sizes on the same board? It would make it look more handcrafted..
