Removing the waste from half blind sockets

Recommended Posts

Not sure how I missed this before, but this is great!

Have you considered whether you could incorporate the dovetail slots into your moxon vise itself to eliminate the separate block? Or am I missing something that would prevent that from working?

I also enjoyed reading on your site about the kerfing chisel, I hadn’t heard of that before.

Derek, wasn’t it you as well who said you used a drill to remove waste from half blind dovetails? I’ve pondered that, as I prefer using a drill over a router, just from a safety aspect. It doesn’t accomplish the same thing as you’ve posted here, but kid of the same effect, I think, yes?

Derek,

I like this idea and think i will make this myself, What is the safest and easiest way to cut the stopped grooves in the base? Thanks for sharing all your ideas.

Woody, you can drill holes at the beginning and end of each groove, and then use a fretsaw to removed the bits between. Or rout it out.
