Nice idea Al – I’ll be stealing that.

Very nice, Al.

I still prefer my own frog-flattener. It’s quite effective.

@August, 220. I feel like machinists probably got pretty close, metalheads that they are;)

No August, my good friend, these are well taken points. We’re talking about a plywood base here, so the micrometer is featured just to prove I have one:) I don’t tend to take my frogs to the extreme (like Charlie does), so a flash at 220 is probably the best this one will get. From a machinist’s point of view, this device is unthinkable. Bow in the base, unequal stones, set on glue, etc. It’s horrific.

August, I review your comments with extra care, given my respect for you and your craft. You’ll never offend me with a comment or suggestion:)

DonW, it’s a bit crude, but I can get to most of it;)

so, I’ll probably build one in Wayne’s honor, file first and polish with the WaAl jig. Otherwise known as the the Wa-yne/Al frog buffer.
