Location: New York

I am a product developer, (some call it Inventor), and have been for most of my career. My first patent was for a combination woodworking machine in 1958 and I went on from there with many different developments in many different fields such as industrial packaging and filling systems, ski bindings, yachting products, medical devices, exercise machines, and lately several different wood working patents for jigs such as doweling jigs, pocket hole jigs, dovetailing jigs, and a few others under development.

Most of my recent woodworking jig patents occured after I had finally retired from active operation of my own business which I sold to General Tools & Instruments, LTD a few years ago. I still retain a consulting arrangement with General and work with them on my latest developments such as the Mortise&Tenon Jig patent which is assigned to them.

This is a note to DynaBlue from the inventor: I read your review of the General Tools Mortise and Tenon Jig and wish to thank you for your expert review and analysis. If possible, I would like to be able to call DB and speak to him privately on some of the details, if you would please give me a way to call him.

I am particularly interested because I am the inventor and patent holder of this tool, so I want you to know that your criticism is completely fair and accurate and, as the designer, but not the manufacturer, I agree with you. However, as you found out, there are some limitations to the jig as it is, but it will, with a little care, make good mortise and tenon joints. I have made hundreds of them along the way and would be pleased to share some of them with you. As with any new technically advanced tool there may well be a learning curve, which, after some practice and experience, will do all that is asked of it.

Every problem you noted in your report is actively being attended to, with thanks to your diligence.

In regards to your wanting to get a hold of DynaBlue, if you go to his page on LumberJocks you can send him a private message requesting his number. The link will be right under his avatar picture.
