Herb Stoops: and if I recall, those ol' Porter-Cable 4x21 belt sanders, like the old Mack trucks had a chain drive.

I remember them and some of them had disk sanders. They always ate my wood before I could get it away. I wish they made all sanders variable speed.

Chris Becksvoort makes it look so easy!

Chris Becksvoort, the dovetail master at work - FineWoodworking

I noticed he utilized a hefty (4"x21??) belt sander to trim the work. I remember when such sanders were a staple in shops and always reminded me of the 1930's/art deco steam locomotives.
A very good book I have by Tage Frid said that he also usually cut his dovetails by hand unless he had quite a few to do. He said there was no time saved on a job with just a few.
