    Thanks Scott,
    I installed Fingermaker. It looks more daunting, but I will check it out... I can't remember if it has sharp angles on the mortises and tenons, I think it might.

    READ Gert's DETAILED instructions!!!

    He Beta tested it on this Forum, and does seem daunting, but a lot of that is because of all the options
    If a Brand Newbie like I could do it 4+ years ago..then you can!

    Keep meaning to get back into it, but things keep coming up(REMEMBER....Bit cuts using a LOT of cutting edge, make sure you have enough on your straight Ball Nose....AND bit will go into spoilboard the radius of the Ball Nose,so adding a separate carrier board is not a bad idea!)

    Maybe G. will chime in?
    I can't remember about square fingers

    Makes me want to go buy a Desktop Max!!! But at least they say this "This accessory can also be used with our larger gantry model tools by modifying the table bed, creating a slot so that material can be mounted vertically on the front face of the jig." just wondering what is involved in "modifying the table bed"
