Wayne Anderson's Plane Sole Dovetailing Demonstration Details
|Before he starts, Wayne files a gullet into each part of the dovetails. This allows his peining to have greater effect, and tighten the joints up amazingly well.|
|After the prep work, it's off to the anvil to work the metal together.
Wayne doesn't hammer too hard. I'd say it's like pounding in a long finish nail. Lost of hammer blows later, the tails begin to mash together and fill any gaps between.
|After the peining is complete, Wayne files the dovetails flush, removing
any excess, down to about a millimeter. He then checks for any gaps, and
proceeds to pein some more, or continue filing until the joint is square
