Not sure how quoting works here…

First off, wow. I’ve been poking around here for awhile when I’ve had other questions and have appreciated the knowledge. Still, compared to various other forums that I would consider fairly active I have to say that this is an impressive response. :] Thanks.

@Loren: By microplane do you mean I was initially thinking of something more like a standard plane (small, micro even) but in a curved body. The options do look interesting.

@mveach: I’m embarassed that I didn’t find that. I searched and even looked specifically on the PC site and it is located right where I should have been looking. For $200 I might have ordered one this morning before heading out to work, but $400 makes me think a bit more. I suppose the price is driven by the dual action (rotary and linear) combined with the apparently low demand (since nobody else makes one that I have seen).

@Jeremy: If HF were closer, that’d be a good option. For now I might just settle for using the already-wobbly Craftsman. I did a little side cutting in sheetmetal with it years ago so wood shouldn’t make it too much worse. :]

I also just found the Grizzly H2881:

Opinions? Very simple and just reduces loading into the drill by reducing the moment (assuming you are careful).

Anyways, given the price of the PC I am tending towards sticking with the drill and cheapo drums I’ve already got for right now, but I do need to consider the microplane stuff. It seems like it could be quite nice to have around. Thanks again to everyone.


P.S. I suppose mentioning that the wood is ash could be relevant to what tool should be used to work it.
