DJ-2 with Dual Heads…
“Men, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose their direction and begin to bend.”
—Walter Savage Landor
Many thanks to those DSN members who provided feedback–I think the DJ-2 is a great new tool and we are excited to hear how you folks use it in your shops. The two images below illustrate what you can do with a second bushing housing, either in tandem or two completely different jig setups;
Dual heads may not be for everybody, but at least the option now exits.
The image below shows how the centering function works–I used the metric scale (way easier) and you can see the spacing is identical on the left and right which indicates the drill line is centered. Your favorite Tool Potentate oriented the graduations so you don’t have to read upside down. Cool yes/no?
Lastly, for you HP6v2 owners, coming in September, a tapered sliding dovetail kit. BTW, tapered sliding dovetails may be one of the most difficult joints to make in wood. But not for long. Also coming in September is the 2012 “Fab Fifty” tool. Yes, it will be made from stainless steel and that is all I am saying about that!
Again, thanks for the feedback. The fact that Roger Savatteri is happy is a minor miracle!
