blake read the instructions on the tenon lock tool and you will notice that it is a 2 step process to create the dove tail shaped hole mine is a 1 step operation that is very well controlled also note my dowel design!
this idea is very old and has been called a fox tail etc but has never been done in a single operation
the tenon lok tool look similar to my first try at this tool and was considerd by a major tool maker but we could not come to agreement lee valley tools has a router bit system called the fox tail


ps :love your website you do beautiful work! all the best

Very interesting, do you sell the dovetail dowels to go with the drill bit, or does each person have to make
their own dowels with the expander pieces. It would definitely give a positive lock to a joint. Does thils
come in various sizes, or just one size fits all? Thank you for sharing.
