« Part 3: Modifications as per requested... Part 4 of Dovetail Calculator series no next part

Its like Alice tumbling down the hole… the more I do there more I could do. But I guess I enjoy it when I get the chance.

UPDATE.. Now at Version 12, which looks like this:

Office 2003:
Office 2010:

Again, all the formulas are available on the form (just make the form wider to suit your needs).

You can now choose to enter the Tail Width (or the Pin Width) which ever takes your fancy.

The Angle Ratio can also be set by you (softwood, hardwood or some other ridiculous number as chosen by you).

You can also choose what kind of Pins you want – Totally square pins or Angled Pins, or … you get the gist.

Still in the pipeline (and this is written in the ‘Things To Do’ section): 1. Blind Dovetails and ‘Double Blind’ dovetails (there is probably a better term for this). 2. Formulas need tidying up! They are getting complicated. For me, they are ok, but for the average Jo (or Jane) out there… I’ll try to simplify them all.

Still happy to take feedback..



-- I know what the tools are, I know what they are used for, now I just have to learn how to apply the fine art and start using them.
