  • Dovetail Stock Source

    Does anyone know of a supplier of dovetail stock. I'm trying to save some machining time and think it would be easier if I could just purchase a length of bar that has one of the corners chamfered, allowing me to simply cut it to length then mount it to a plate or fixture.

    Thanks

    I can't help in locating off the shelf dovetail stock. However, I have made small dovetail slides by fabrication as shown here:

    This method is quicker and easier than milling from solid.

      You didn't mention what size or material you want, but Brownells certainly sells bars of dovetail stock.
