The Tapered Sliding Dovetail is arguably one of the
best joints in woodworking. Properly
formed it does not require any screws, glue, or
clamps for assembly, it by nature squares itself
(if designed to) and it it much stronger than other
joints because it forms a mechanical
joint over an extended area. Additionally, the joint
is very tolerant to climatic changes because
it is an all wood joint. Unfortunately, until now,
it has been very difficult to consistently
The Easy Sliding Dovetail Kit includes everything
you need to produce perfect tapered sliding
dovetails every time. It is also the only product
that will allow you to cut half and full
tapered sliding dovetail. The unique modular design
of the separate precision CNC machined
router templates for cutting the Socket and the Pin
provide unlimited versatility.
|| The Manti
and Mini-Mantis, and Metric Mantis (for our customers
metric measure), take the guesswork out of
depth of cut setup on a variety of woodworking
tools including the routers, router tables, shapers,
table saws and jointers.
Setting depth of cut on woodworking tools is a
everyday thing in the woodshop. Accurately
setting them is not a trivial issue, unless you
use a Mantis. All woodworking tools us a
"supportive reference surface to either support the
work or the tool while cutting. The table
top of the table saw, the base plate of the router,
the bed of the jointer are all examples of this
"supportive reference surface". When setting
depth of cut with these tools the cutter is
relative to the Plane of the
supportive reference surface. The Mantis is a
aluminum casting that has a 1" diameter measuring
anvil mounted to a precision dial indicator,
so that it measures the elevation of the cutter tool
above the supportive reference surface. The
large frame Mantis allows the Indicator to be mounted
outside the legs positions so that the
indicator in a cantilevered position can be used to
set jointer knives and to measure out feed
table elevations directly relative to the infeed
table. The compact Mini-Mantis is convenient
for measuring router bit elevations. Quit
guessing about cutting depth, use the Mantis
Mini-Mantis to get it right all the time.
SQ2™ circular saw alignment tool. Circular saws
cut using a series of teeth on a
circular plane. So why not measure the plane of the
blade relative to the supportive reference
surface of the tool. The SQ2 uses 3 synchronized SHAN
512-166 precision dial indicators
mounted in a precision CNC machined casting to
precisely measure the plane of your saw
or master plate, relative to the miter slot and
the plane of the table top. There is no error in
product due to movement because you simple set it in
place and don't move it. Use it to setup
all your stationary circular saws, including your
table saw, radial saw and the notoriously out
of alignment chop saw. Leave it setup all the time
ready to check your 90° measurements as
well as your bevel cuts. The SQ2 will easily get
provide you tilt accuracy to .1° tilt accuracy
After squaring your arbor to the the miter slot, drop
the blade so that you can square the fence assembly.
The SQ2 can also be used to square the jointer fence
to the infeed/outfeed beds of the jointer.
Use the SQ2 to check the the table to bandsaw blade

The SHAN270-BC30 and the SHAN 270-BC64
digital scale kits for Biesemeyer &
PowerMatic rip fences
provide you with reliable fence settings for your
The SHAN 270-BC30 fits the Biesemeyer BC30 fence and
provides digital accuracy for setting fence
position for 30" to the right of the
blade. The SHAN 270-BC30 is also useful
for making a precision
crosscut sled (see picture below).
The SHAN270- BC30/BC64 readout is
integrated on the sliding sensor head that is fixed to
the box beam.
The mounting allows the fence to be simply removed as
usual by just lifting the fence body off
of the support rail. No tools, no messy wires,
economically priced, the SHAN BC 30/BC50 provides
unparalleled performance and value.
The SHAN270-BC30/BC64 will change the way you do
woodworking forever. Now you can reliably trim .010"
off of a piece with confidence, for a perfect
fit. More importantly you can go back later to exactly
same setting when you need to.
Mounting a router in the extension wing of your table
saw is a great idea. With it you get a large work
surface to support you work with the router.
With a SHAN BC30/BC50 mounted on the rip fence
you now get positioning accuracy that only a digital
scale can provide. With this setup and some
simple jigs you can make you can make through dovetail
variable size through or half blind dovetails
in a flash. More importantly, with digital
positioning, you can make cuts today and come back
and make the same cutes three weeks from now.
The SHAN270-BC30 can also be used on homemade crosscut
sleds (Picture below to provide digital accuracy
for cross cutting members and for forming tenon
BC30 Digital Scale (above left) provides digital fence
positioning for Biesemeyer, Powermatic
and other rip fences with 2"x3" box beams. The
clear display of the BC30/BC64 digital scale (above right)
provides accuracy to .001" and resolution to .0005".
The sensor display provides for simple incremental
(stepwise cutting) that does not require a calculator. The
unit is fully programmable for fixed offsets.
The Biesemeyer fence with an auxiliary router fence,
(below left) provides digital fence positioning
for router operations. This ids great for cutting dovetails.
Our latest innovation using the BC30 product is the digital
crosscut sled( below right) provides
digital crosscut accuracy up to 32" and is great for
making precision panels and forming tenon shoulders.
