    I am a beginning woodworker who is learning the craft for my own pleasure. This is a handy little tool to help me consistently mark out accurate dovetails. The tool is made with sufficient quality and functions as I would expect it to. Is it a necessary item, no certainly not. But it is a handy convenience and so it was worth the investment for me since I plan to cut many dovetails. I would recommend it to anyone in a similar position. Not flashy, but definitely functional.

    There is one complaint I have. On this dovetail marker it would be useful if the purpose of the angle were indicated on the backside. The package does, however, tell you that the 1:5 side is for soft woods and the 1:8 is for hard woods. By the way, "1:5" means the slope of the dovetail angle on each side is 1 inch of height over 5 inches of run, "1:8" of course means 1 inch over 8 inches of run. The dovetail marker is 1 inch long for each angle set. Though there are a large number of potential angles that would be suitable for dovetails, the angles of 1:5 and 1:8 are the most common and thus used on this marker.

    I like this tool, and I think the hole that runs through the back block would allow it to be mounted on a rod attached in a jig. Such a jig would let one set it on the work-piece and easily slide the dovetail marker along to mark out multiple dovetails. I really like the fact that it could easily be applied to a jig.

    If you need one, this one does the job... it's an invaluable tool if you're making hand cut dovetails. My only wish is that it be made of a heavier metal... something simple like steel... and that's really my only complaint... it's quite light and feels to be made of aluminum. Other than that, I'm happy!
