Those two files have problems too. You probably could not puzzlecut them.
Have you tried to fix them with Netfabb or Meshlab? Sketchup was not helpful
this time. I have them fixed using Meshlab AND Netfabb site Torsten linked
above. Both are free.

A change in the dovetail code could provide a larger peg.

OpenSCAD already do that with a simple user code like puzzlecutlib.scad. No
reason to include it in the core. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with
puzzlecutlib.scad. The problems you had came from problematic stl's. For
this, there are tools out there.
