7 degree half inch dovetail bit

Your March 2012 article concerning "Build it Your Way" bookcases gives the details for a jig and recommends a half inch 7 degree dovetail bit.  I've tried Frued, Rockler, MCLS, Eagle America and the Woodsmith store.  No one sells this bit.  I can find it in 17/32 but will that cause any problems if I use it in conjuction with the jig described?

Re: 7 degree half inch dovetail bit

 I found one at Eagle America, part # P13-2256     www.eagleamerica.com   It seems this is for a PC jig.

   I do think the 17/32" would work just fine as you adjust the width of the tongue to fit.     I would also think an 8* bit would work,  but would make  a little weaker joint, but not by much.       The 1/2" part is the rare part.

Re: 7 degree half inch dovetail bit

Welcome to the forums of Woodmagazine.com, Jennings. I see you have an answer already, so I'd also like to invite you to explore the video channels as well.

WOOD Online has a very respectable library of free videos for your education and enjoyment in the pursuit of learning more about the craft of woodworking.

There are two channels you can look at for specific subjects:

The first is WOODCuts.
http://www.woodmagazine.com/woodvision/
This is the site to go for “house” videos that WOOD magazine has produced for its site visitors. Although these may have commercials in them, and thus have a bit of a loading wait, they are still solid blocks of good to know information professionally shot and edited, with clear and concise demonstrations.

The second resource for videos is WOODTube.
http://woodtube.ning.com/
These are user submitted videos usually shot by woodworkers who wish to visually share tips, tricks, and techniques they feel are worth passing on. This site has a search engine so you can get more specific in your need to know area.

And finally, don't forget you can use the site search function to bring up past articles of interest too!

A successful journey has two parts; facing the right direction, and taking the first step.
