    Well, Here's what I got from Bob Gibson.



    I have to admit, I do not use the push sticks much, but the only reason is because they are so nice and good looking I'm afraid I'd ruin them! I have used them however as patterns to make some knockoffs that I'm not afraid to mess up.

    This other 'jig' I got though, I use all the time. All day today as a matter of fact while I've been listening to football and doing work work. It's my favorite pen, actually!

    I actually have used the Fibonacci gauge that Brent made me just a few days ago. I did have to run the box through the TS and trim down the top's sides as the weather here is a bit more moist than NV. Took 1/64th off as it was sticking, added a little wax on it, and it's good as new.
