Hi Daryl,

I am a little late getting to this discussion but I have a question. What is the purpose of the 55 and 35 degree angles on the straight edge? Is it to be able to isolate working on just one surface of a dovetail at a time? Just curious.
Yes, one surface at a time for flat. Use dowels and a mic on each side of the tail and a master square, king-way (or similar) to assess other geometry.
