I get lots of positive e mails from customers but it's always nice to see the results. Jim from CT USA bought a 1:8 jig and a 372 saw a few months ago and is very pleased. This cabinet, made for a friend, had six dovetailed drawers all assembled straight from the saw with no missed cuts or paring. Nice job!
Jim made himself a dovetail alignment board and while not as fancy as some he must have made it accurately to produce such fine work.
His version of Bench Crafted moxon vice uses two veneer screws to give a 4 1/2" jaw opening and a 25" capacity between the screws. The jaws are 2 1/4" thick and the top is 1 3/4" thick with a depth of 14". It is made of hard maple and is capable of some serious dovetailing!
