Question

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
While I respect Frank's skills and accomplishments his techniques never found a home in my shop. I have not kept up with this discussion. Is this saw and technique a large version of a fret saw with the blade bent 90 degrees for sawing to near (or at I suppose) the baseline for dovetail waste removal?

For a technique that seems to have no application in making furniture it sure gets a lot of discussion. Yet another example of our crafts modern infatuation with dovetails.
