Porter cable dovetail jig 4216
I'm using template 4210 doing half blind dovetails, and I am having trouble using it. I feel like I'm making it harder than it has to be but I like to be very precise, and usually I have next to no flaws in my work because I'm very meticulous.
Anyway the template itself, the placement of it for making the joint should be lined up along the butting of both the horizontal and vertical work pieces and the grove cut in the template in my opinion is not better than cutting on any old side of the line.
I tried measuring in a few spots and have tried reasoning through the fact one side sits proud and the other is flush and it seems like one board cuts fine the. Next isn't.
Any suggestions or should I judge by eye?
