Abstract : Development of a tension test suitale for quality control on finger joints and other end joints in wood is described. The specimen used is rectangular and can be prepared rapidly with a planer-type table saw. The approximate size of the specimen is 3/32 by 3/4 inch in cross section by 10 inches in length. Because the specimen is simply prepared and can be tested quickly on a universal testing machine, t is also well suited as a screening tool in research and development on end joints in wood. Author)
