« on: September 29, 2018, 03:15 PM »
Just ran across this on You Tube and thought it was interesting. He makes it look easy to make hand cut dovetails.

When he cuts out the waste at around 2:30, it is fascinating to see how that blade turns to horizontal.  [eek] [eek]  I thought only a very narrow blade could do that. Slick.
Looks like your rabbit joint is a hare off! ;)

It's a special type of blade which I think has not been made in decades.  I read somewhere about somebody finding a few NOS and how excited Frank was to receive one of them.   In addition to having the blade forged to twist like that I think the teeth are graduated.

"If it's too tight, don't force it. Just get a bigger hammer." Classic.

Fantastic!
Don't know why, but the Marx Brothers kept coming into my mind as I watched. Strange.......
