Since it is life or death———
Here is a Stanley 3 1/2, a miter square,and chisels I use for dovetailing. The 3 1/2 uses a modified #7 iron and chip breaker,the miter square is made of rosewood,brass,and maple.The dovetailing chisels were made from old beveled edge chisels. The square and the chisels I made probably 25 years ago and the plane was made about 15 years ago.I made the plane cause I didn’t like the massivness of the 5 1/2.The only drawback is a shorter sole.That said ,most of it’s use is for fitting.
