    Shooting Board Guide Rail

    Well, thanks once again to member Derek Cohen who posted this out there somewhere in web-land. The shooting board was a dream to use before but, Derek's little addition of a guide rail to keep the plane from moving away from the platform adds a surprising amount of confidence. The operator can concentrate more on the forward and backward action without worry about applying lateral pressure so much.

    My board was not designed with this in mind so it hangs off a bit. I put slots in the guide rail so I can adjust it for use with other planes. Derek has different rails for different purposes. I'm not quite that advanced yet.

    Notice how the Bulbanga (or however you spell it) stays the same color in all three photos. Notice how the "Hot Dog" appears as three different colors.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    That should work good. Hats off to you and Derek
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
