STA VS. CONVENTIONAL DOVETAILS
CONVENTIONAL DOVETAILS
  • Dovetails become shorter when sharpened and must be re-centered each time.
  • Re-centering a dovetail on a screw machine is not very efficient or cost effective.
  • You will need to purchase more than one tool to reduce machine down time.
STA
  • Initial set up is the same as for a conventional dovetail.
  • The insert remains on center in the holder even after sharpening.
  • Can be used for a family of parts without re-centering or making lateral adjustments.
  • Drop-in shave holders available.
STA VS. COMPETITORS’ SINGLE USE
COMPETITORS’ SINGLE USE
