Now we can hand tremble as he wants …
the base at an angle of 42 degrees
chisel angle is 15 degrees
all must be lubricated with wax to better glide
may not look pretty but the result is great comments welcome
thanks for watching

Good idea. Does not have to look pretty if it works well.

Great project.

Tools are like girls—Prettiest does NOT MEAN BEST!

If it works well—pretty is unimportant! I tell the guy in the mirror that everyday! He can still work-has never been “pretty”!

Mi kao da se natječemo u postavljanju ‘postova’. Svakako ovaj projekt treba uzeti u obzir kod planiranja kako nabrusiti dlijeta (u onoj budućnosti kad kupim mini tokarilicu) :-)

I never (well almost never) pay attention to beauty in shop jigs. Functionally is what counts and yours looks functional.
