    Since using the latest Smooth Stepper plugin for several weeks, months ? I've had no problems with homing the X and slaved A drives, I would say that issue is now sorted.

    Proposed modifications !
    This is to allow joints to be cut in the ends of wood, it provides a 'hole' of roughly 200mm square so the wood can be placed in the X or Y planes.
    It's based on using this vice guts; http://www.canadiantools.co.uk/tools...19.html#SID=50, the rest is made from various types of wood (normal for this type of vice )
    Made so it's removable with a replaceable insert to put the bed back to normal.

    Pictures show how it looks with vice fully open and fully closed.

    I can't have the vice sticking out at the front so the only thing to confirm is whether I can hold a piece of wood in the jaws while tightening the vice.
    There's more than enough room above for the spindle and tooling.

    Edit:

    Would this do instead ?

    Interesting idea and a good price for that vice if memory serves. I can't help feeling that while I think this will work it's going to be a lot of hassle to set up for the benefit it brings unless you are intending to make a run of identical components. For the joint to be any good you'll need to get the wood bang on parallel with the cutter (in the vertical direction) which will be difficult without a fence which would have to stick down though the table.

    I think I'd invest my time in buying a Festool Domino (amazing bit of kit) and if I wanted dovetails a dovetailing jig.

    Thanks for feedback.

    The corner innermost to the machine will be made very accurate so that any wood placed up against it will be vertical in both planes. The whole assembly would be securely fastened to the bed using location points to give repeatable positioning.
    Domino's too big for my purpose and also too expensive. Need more joints than just dovetails, the vice would allow wood to be angled at 45 deg. for example.
