A gift as precise as the work.
Attach the HP-6v2 Dovetail Gage to the narrow end of the mail dovetail and tighten the clamps to find out the ideal dado width you would need to cut for the female dovetail. These are measure with dial or digital calipers. (If the dado width indicated is .375-.499”, you can use the 3/8” dado kit. Anything over .5” will require the .5” dado kit.) Once locked, you slide the Dovetail Gage off the narrow end of the dovetail. Later we will use this locked setting to help cut the female portion of the joint.
In making the female dovetail, use the left and right sides of the Dovetail Gage as guides for shop made guide boards because each is tapered ¼ degree. Once clamped, remove the Dovetail Gage from the dado.
