Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
There is more than one reason they call it the ’left coast’.

I like the flattening jig. What is the size of the straight bit you use?

I cannot see how it Flattens anything!

Can you show a better diagram / picture… or something?

Thank you.

Looks good. Maybe add a picture of how it works for the people that can’t see it

nice mess, you do know, that a clean shop is the mark of an idle shop. :)
I saw these on U-tube and promptly made one … too small of course … so I made another larger one.

I suppose the board you’re using as a sled would have to be perfectly level as well, no sag. Just for those of you who couldn’t “see” it, here’s a youtube video of it:

OK… very much like Harrys skiis!

I can see that!

That board better not have any sag in it…!! Looks kinda thin to me…

In picture #3, everything looks OK except What is that in the upper right corner?? Looks like it’s in the way… or something…
