Why is it a fox-wedge though? Is it not just a wedge unless used in a specific way, i.e. fox-wedging a tenon?



I only know of the carpentry uses, but I've always thought they were called Fox Wedges to echo the Foxes cunning, as in my preferred use of them in a closed mortice; this makes it a stub tenon, but wedged - cunning, you see. :-)

Not my drawing, nicked from the web.

That's what I'd call Fox wedges as well ayjay. I thought it was because it was cunning as well. I don't think I've ever actually made that joint though. I always used to make them through if they were wedged, and use a bit of contrasting stuff for the wedges for show. That was on furniture though.

We always called steel wedges folding wedges FWIW. Handy for pulling gib head keys on bigger stuff.
