TOOL USAGE
HOW DO THE TOOLS WORK?
Like a Giant Pencil Sharpener!
WHAT TOOLS DO I NEED TO GET STARTED?
DRILL
*Recommended Drill: Milwaukee 1660-6
VICE/CLAMP SYSTEM
*Not available through Lumberjack Tools
DRAW KNIFE
TENON CUTTER KIT
*Tenon cutter, bit, and plan booklet
Can the tenon cutter cut multiple sizes? NO
WHAT TYPE OF WOOD WILL THE TOOLS WORK ON?
 GREEN & DRY WOOD? YES HARD & SOFT WOOD? YES

DRILL PRESS OR CORDLESS DRILL?

The tools are not made to work in a drill press or a cordless drill. A drill press requires the log to be clamped vertically which is dangerous and difficult to do.

*Exceptions: The 1/2" and 5/8" tenon cutters may be used in a cordless drill

HOW DEEP DO I DRILL THE MORTISE HOLE?

1/3 - 1/2 the diameter of the log

      HOW LONG DO I CUT THE TENON?

      1/4" less than the depth of the hold. You want the tenon to "float" in the hold and not to "bottom out" or hit the bottom of the mortise hole.
