Breaking In the Sommerfeld Jig
Finally got around to tackling the Sommerfeld Dovetail Jig and am happy to report early and easy success. This tool is a no-brained if you follow Marc’s clear instructions on YT videos. Through and blind dovetails are pretty cut and dried if you setup the jig (I didn’t the first time) mechanics and label your parts at the outset. By my third trial Pine box it was second nature - a fourth using minimum dimension 1/2” stock (not shown) worked well too.
PS: Marc Sommerfeld has come down with ALS and is deteriorating quickly according to his technical support person - a pity considering all Marc has contributed to this industry.
