This has got to be the BEST method I've seen for making dovetails. Quickly, and, if you're REAL lucky, safely too!!

Dovetails, fast and furious

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Very nice tool, I can see a few more uses beyond making 4x8's out of two 4x4's such as cutting frozen backbacon you left in the van last night and quickly removing the caps from your Molsens by applying the cap to the rear side of the blade! I have already experimented with the opening method, first you remove that pesky anti-kickback guard then lever to bottle over the top handle till the cap contacts. I had never thought of having the blade vertical though, always lost half of my Labatts or Moosehead when I did it with the saw laying on the ground.

PS- Brian keep up the good work of showing Canadian technology at its best!

Amazing and so delicate! It even rivals my own invention - the propane dovetail burner. My version is quieter, but lacks the infinite adjustability! OPG3

Then there was the ill faited 30 ton log spliter conversion, just aligine two parts at right angles and let the wood grain decide where they would put the 'dovetails' however critics called it the roadkill machine due to the squished appearance of the joinery.

I understand the tool is also listed for removing ear wax... but only in Newfoundland...

Looks like it will trim fingernails too - maybe market it to Wild Nails.

I'm wondering if I could clamp my 14" electric chainsaw in the bench vice and give it a go, or perhaps I could clamp the wood in my B & D Workmate and to remain safe, use my two stroke pole chainsaw with all three extensions fitted!
