Recently I have setup a new workshop (been away from woodwork for a long time) I have alway wanted to play with dovetails so the new VS 600 was one of the tools on my want list.
With it I got to gigs 1 x VS600-szo 14z and 1 x vs 600-szo14s the dealer gave me two cutters one dovetail HW 491 164 and HW 490 978
So I started plying reading through the really good instructions at http://web.mac.com/glwork/The_Dovetail_Joint/Manuals.html
( link found on forum thanks) I thought I had arrived.
Could I get my test peaces to fit together NO No No
Apparently the dealer things that the O stands for open dovetail and I was trying to make the ease blind dovetail to get that under my belt first
Im practising on 18mm ply and MDF at the moment the depth range of materials for the guide,s is I think 14 to 22mm
So what help do I need?
Is there a tables setting out what cutters and guides should be used
any other info that can be passed onto a newbe
