Well, that last comment does clarify things or narrows the contention, so that's helpful. You would have to go even further though to be convincing on that last sentence, something like, "...when the outer side of the tenon hole has a corresponding angle to the bearing side of the wedge inserted..." for example, and even then it's an up-hill argument. You wrote earlier the wedges are 1:8 a standard ratio of slope for a dovetail joint so I guess the hole that wedge fits also has a corresponding slope or something comparable for an equal dispersion of the pressure drawing the tenon in, otherwise I now understand the likelihood of blowout you fear.

Yes Mr Wagstaff. It was a daunting task, we managed to apply a shim, a wedge in itself, to one side of the boring machine to get the hole tilted. If using a T-auger one could simply tilt it away a bit and be near perfect in the slope. I am not fearing the blow out as I take precautions against it, once we recognize the fear we can embrace it.

You see, the fog of a murky proposition starts to thin and clear thinking can then begin to settle in. It also addresses my next question, preemptively, about the different sized exposed ends of these "tapered pegs" or what I am now calling the Beal effect.
