1:8 Dovetail Marker Set
1:8 is our steepest-ratio for elegant dovetails in hardwood. 1:8 is the traditional ratio for the finest work, especially in contrasting species. Ideal for “English pattern” work where the pins taper to just the width of your saw. The 1:8 dovetail marking set will make your life easier in places where there is far less room for error. For the peak of elegance and repeatable results go with the 1:8 set. Our second most popular single item, and combined with 1:6 and SQd, our most popular 3-item bundle.
Using TailSpin marking tools to put collinear marks on BOTH sides of your joint means you can cut to the SAME line on your pin and tail boards for a perfect fit. These tools are faster and more accurate than your current workflow.
