We spent the day with my Parents today, and woodwork naturally came up in
conversation - and I said I was going to try dovetail router joints.
My Dad said he had two jigs that I could have.
I knew he had one, but not two ..
He could not find the manual for one of them (given a few days, it may
The first one is:
Stanley Dovetail Att model 116 A
It is 24" long
with only one template - the wide one, the narrow one has not been seen for
18 years. There is no manual - which is want I am looking for.
The second one:
Craftsman / Sears Roebuck
Dovetail attachment, part # 9-2462
It is about 8" long, and says only for 1/2" bit use
I have the one page manual that and original box.
It only references making drawers, which makes sense, being a small jig.
The guides on both are fixed, and they are both from the late 1950's
They both look very straight forward to use, and I suspect that they are
similar to what is common still.
Thanks in advance.
