I bought an Alumo 1 weatherstripping plane a few weeks ago at a flea market, thinking I could perhaps use it to make grooves in draw bottoms.

Does anybody here collect them or use them?

I bought one w/ the same idea and used it for one project. Problem for me was it made the groove farther from the edge of the board than I wanted, so I added a bit of wood to change that, which interfered w/ shavings.

Have your say...
