Dovetail Punch

Facebook, being the clever spies that they are, has noticed that I buy tools.

Today the suggested item is:

I have no idea what this thing is.  The description mentions gaskets... but I have no idea how it works.

Anyone out there know?

Brian in the comments found out what it does!   It's like a cookie cutter for fitting gaskets to each other.


  1. Well, isn't it obvious? It says it's a dovetaail punch right there on the punch handle. It's used to punch a notch in a doeve's tail so that the gasket attaches to the dove in a more secure manner.

  2. Got curious and found this on the website.
