Hey Guys,

I am not an experienced woodworker at all. I have just finished my shop and I haven’t even cut a dovetail yet. But I am very familiar with machinery. I have read through Ed Bennet’s web site and yes the man is a bit on the bold side and yes his tool costs money but I have not seen a solid argument to refute his device. I know that people will argue that you can get good cuts with a saw using the trial and error method or using a device like a dial indicator and a stick and even Ed Bennet admits this can get you to accuracy over time. But I am after accuracy with no doubts and after reading Ed Bennet’s web site, I know that mathematically his device is sound. I don’t want to mess around with a dial indicator on a stick that I have to devise myself or come up with a makeshift way of doing things. I want a device dedicated for the job and something that is accurate the first time. So Jack, if you truly feel that, “there wasn’t as much good information available as there is now”, then are you willing to part with yours? Not to be provocative here but I think Mr. Bennett’s device is accurate and a dedicated device that works.
