The #140 Trick is Dead ....

Recommended Posts

Thanks Derek! I have been using the #140 trick since I learned to cut DT's by hand a couple years back just never knew that it had a name. I still follow Rob's method for cutting DT's but I'm going to give blue tape a try on the next set both instead of the rebate and for seeing the cut lines.

Does the tape on the pin boards (in the last photo) work well to register your saw against?

Art, the tape on the pin board in a single layer, which makes it too thin to use as a fence, per se. However, it increased visibility to a large degree, and I find it easier to saw against than a knife line.

I generally get about 98% accuracy with dovetails going together off the saw.

Regards from Perth

Thanks for the reply.  I'll definitely be trying the blue tape trick now.
