I built this jig for future projects. Haven’t actually made anything with it yet, just a test but it worked ok.

It looks to me like you lay out the DTs as if you’re cutting by hand, and adjust them by hand as you go. They would rest on the outside of the jig, both pins and tails. It actually made a lot of sense to me as I thought about it. You could see exactly where to place them based on your layout and the kerf line in the jig.

There does not seem to be any sort of mechanical means of ensuring the pins and tails fit uniformly, but this seems like an excellent system for hogging out material and fine tuning by hand.

Here’s the link where I got the idea. It has a video on how to build it and use it.
