Thanks Bue.... I'm a picture guy myself.....
I started this splice last weekend from a billet Mike gave me a while back..... I had to saw it up the middle to get 2 Billets and they went together really well....Hope it helps Jawge looking forward to your build along..... [Smile] Terry

Awesome job my friend! Looks like a hum-dinger to me. Good saw work, having the bottom of the billets square to the intended splice is upmost importance.

I used to use a "Z" splice but Jim Fetrow taught me how to do the double fishtail splice and I've been using it ever since.......It's really no harder to do and it gives ya a lot more glued surface area in the splice...... Terry

Thank you Sparky and good point......It is very critical that the vertical planes are paralell to each other on any splice..... Terry

Nice pictorial Terry. The W splice or double fishtail splice was the most popular splice in the 40's and 50's. It's the one my dad used all the time. You did a great job of explaining it with good pics.

BTW is that a blade of grass I see in your yard in the next to last pic? [scared]
