Maybe you guys have found this and have talked about it already, but I hadn't seen it mentioned. Pretty cool stuff.

If it's Google it must be pretty good but I'm not going to use it. I used your link and it tried to open an Intranet connection. No need for that unless they want to write a bunch of junk on MY computer. Sorry, I'll just keep using this one: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/search.html

Cool....I input 'dovetail template' expecting it to show a gazillion patents with mine nowhere to be found, but damned if mine wasn't the first one at the top of the list ! :)

I just tried it an my port scanner didn't show any out of the ordinary activity. Just normal tcp connections to the remote host.

I'm surprised it wasn't considered a derivative work. Consider all the patents around laminar flow fluids - the patentable part is often the application and not the underlying science. This is visualized by thinking of a steam engine versus the applications of steam engine power. Have you had to defend it at all against other derivatives? There seems to be no shortage of various dovetail guides for the longest time.

. Have you had to defend it at all against other derivatives? There seems to be no shortage of various dovetail guides for the longest time. I sold the patent along with my Omnijig product line to Porter Cable a few years after the patent was granted so any defending would have been done by Porter Cable. Have heard nothing from them regarding infringment in the years since.
