    Thumbs up Cutting dovetails with your table saw

    The latest issue of Shop notes (one of my favorite ww magazines) has a tutorial on how to cut dove tails with a table saw. I believe you get a free preview on thier web site www.shopnotes.com . It lookes easy enough and the only thing that you realy need is to have you blade reground to keep the bottom of the dovetails flat. It's in Vol 18 issue 108.

    I would have poisted this under tip but alas I can't post on that section of the forum.

    instead of going through the time and expense of regrinding a ts blade, why not cut the bottom a bit shallow, and clean up with a chisel?

    Dan,
    The ones he showed in the article had real thin pins.
    My thinist Chisel is 1/4 inch. It wouldn't fit. You don't grind much off the blade the one he used was ground for 7.1 degrees.
