The quality of the joint, as expected, is no different regardless of the vise used.

The top joint shown in the picture was cut about 10 years ago before I even had a dovetail saw, the bottom one, yesterday, using the Veritas dovetail saws (14 tpi rip and cross) .

The vises are described here:

Nice work on the dovetails.

I interpreted it as more of an exclamation
Your vise is making dovetails!!

I think it’s his VICE … and the benefit of a few practice pieces in between :)

Yes, I know, its just funny how it can have several meanings!

Chuck, the Veritas dovetail saw does a much better job! Or is it that you just gotten better after 10 years?
