Default Another Question

Seems as tough I am full of questions,but this is the place for the answers. I am in the process of making Two under the bed Blanket Boxes, for a wedding gift. I made one but the Dove Tails are quite Tight. I am using the Keller Jigs. Does the Old Addage hold true in Table Mounted Routing "Highten To Tighten-Lower to Loosen"? The Pins fit but had to use the "O'le Fine Adjusting Tool" I would like them to fit snug,but without any beating. Thanks

"Heighten To Tighten-Lower to Loosen"

That sure does hold true.

You're doing well, many members only have part time use of a single garage.

Hi Harry

Not always true

Because the Keller jig is a through type dovetail jig it must set dead on..most use a 7/16" 7deg.router bit..
I would suggest checking your setting on the bit...the bit must be right at the top of the wood, not below, not above, right flat with the stock..

Bob, are you saying that the height of the bit must be the exact height of the piece to be cut? I laid a piece of the matching wood on the template and scribed a line. Keller says "Leave a 1/16 above the scribed line,or a 1/32nd above and then sand off the overage" I tried this and the fit is VERY TIGHT.

Hi DAUTTERGUY

This is one time you don't want to do what they say..

Take a piece of the same stock you are going to put the dovetails in (a cut off piece ) set it on the jig template move the bit up or down until the bit is the same as the cut piece....the pencil line can be off just a bit and most of the time it is...
The dovetails will come out right on the button without the need to sand or to use a trim bit to get them flush....and they will fit just right...

Not being familiar this particular jig, I can't make much sense out of your description Bj. how about a couple of shots that will reveal all.

This is how you adjust it for T or L fit.
