even a handtool galoot need aplience´s for the work … know that :-)
and there is nothing to bee ashamed of by using them
woodworkers with maschineshops always like to tell about they have build jiigs
for this and that and those all the time , but it seems to me when you talk about
refining the work with planes or other handtools becourse they can make a butyer work
then its not allowed to talk about they have used a jiig (aplience ) to help them to get
the precition in the work and yet we still use them all the time like shootingboardsoff all kinds, benchhook,
diferent kinds of holdfast that match profiles on the boards but its a no – no to talk about it

WHY ? ....I do not understand that mentality ….is it beourse they think they are more galoot (man)
if they say they havn´t used a silent helper to get the precition they want

I´m glad you posted this one and that Blake showed on a picture how he used a Veritas aplience (jiig)
to help him to control the japanese saw when he cuts the dovetails

even windsor chair makers use help to controll the angle when the drill the holes

and last a the body of a plane is just a jiig to controll a cheisel——right :-)

take care
