I am using the Rockler dovetail jig on some 3/4" walnut. I have been successful one time with this jig but I always manage to have issues cutting the tails. I am using the bits that come with the jig and maybe that is the issue. I am sandwiching my project piece between two 1/4 pieces of plywood cut to the same dimensions as the project piece.
I have already figured out how to cut the pins successfully. The method I use is cutting in small increments as well as climb cutting. I do not have to sandwich the project piece between two pieces of plywood for this cut.
Any suggestions would be nice. Scrapping some good hardwood is getting expensive.
Finally getting a chance to upload some pics here. I went back out and finally tried again. I was trying to use climb cuts to do this, and it started out alright, but by the time i got to the end it started tearing out again.
