Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks, I found that site in Italian with Google but couldn't find the English page. But I see Webster define's "joggle as: a notch or tooth in a joining surface (as of a piece of building material) to prevent slipping. So that's what we're looking for!

Asker: defines - sorry for the abominable use of the apostrophe!!
