After using my Black and Decker finger jointer attachment, I fell to
wondering if there is a modern equivalent.
Google turned up loads of descriptions on how to make a Jointer for use
with a bench saw. This looks OK apart from the need for a dado blade set
for the saw.
An alternative suggested was a straight cutter and a dovetail jig. I
have been considering such a purchase but been put off by the lack of
adjustment (drawer depth has to suit the dovetail jig spacing).
Has anyone come across such a device?
You would need a set of different combs for the jig as well to do finger
jointing. Some come with, some have them as extras.
Even the basic ones will handle a drawer up to about 12" deep. You then
just position the timber in the jig to get your half pins in the right
place top and bottom.
The posher jigs like the leigh ones are fully adjustable as well, so you
can position the dovetails wherever you like.
though I think it over priced. If you have a router table making up
the table saw type jig to suit should do the job
