Dovetail Slot

A dovetail slot is a particular type of bore that is designed to be matched with a dovetail anchor. This uniquely shaped hole has the base of a triangle that then opens up at the top with two extensions outward from the walls of the base. Given the complex design, the dovetail slot is particularly effective at anchoring one part to another while allowing for sliding movement along the length of the slot.
