Hi I have a dovetail template a leichtung workshops and can’t find out what bits ineed to use with it. the website says it takes a 5/8” bushing an 8deg.bit & a7/16 or 1/2 straight bit, but its only 9/16 between tails on my template. Does anyone know what size bits & bushing it takes or can you figure it out. I’d like use a bearing on the bits i/o of a bushing. Also do you know what to glue loose veneer down with? Thanks Jake

when you say straight bits you are talking “through dovetails”. with a 5/8’s bushing in a 9/16th slot, it ain’t gonna work is it?

Have your say...
