I’m restoring an old jack plane and I need to make a new tote for it. The recess for the tote has angle at one end, this helps to lock the tote in place. The problem is that I don’t know what that angle is. Well, I came up with a method of finding that angle.

Perhaps this tip will work for you as well. Thanks for watching.
