Just a (mostly) hand tool hack. I picked up character traits (related to woodworking, work flow, and choice of vintage things overall) from my Dad, Grandad and Mother.

I would like to get a copy of the high resolution picture showing the Stanley No. 444 dovetail detail dimensions for various thicknesses of wood. You mentioned it in your Lumberjack’s 3-part discussion on the Stanley 444. If you could send it to [email protected] I would greatly appreciate it. I have recently acquired a Stanley 444 and I am trying to figure out how to set it up. I have seen various low resolution versions of the diagram online but none are readable.
