  1. by the way it is also a very good carving tool to make netsuke
  2. would you know where in Japan? a friend of mine lives in Kyoto , he could order it for me there. do you know the name of the firm which makes them and sell them other than in set? or may be a shop ? thanks in advance
  3. Hi About twenty years ago I bought this tool (see pictures) I would like to buy a new one but don't seem to be able to locate a seller Does anybody knows ? thank you for your help
  4. hello i found this in an old violin maker shop. Has anybody any suggestion for its uses? I thought it could be for bending a head plate of a bow, but it doesn‘t quite fit any idea? thanks
  5. I have been wondering: I am resetting a neck, to change the projection. I filled the top block part with the same wood as the block, which is on this case willow.I could have a block going all the way throught to the table and so I would avoid to have to fit a piece of pine, on the table, which would not go along the grain any way. the willow would have standing years of course be might be less obnoxious as the pine besides being in one piece.What do you reckon willow all the way through or pie cross grain? thank you for your thoughts
  6. hello does anybody knows where to buy tool by this maker? thank you for any hint I think he works in Tokyo but I am not sure
  7. thanks I'll check but may be for me in Europe dictum is cheaper
  8. thanks I will get one at least !
  9. because I was not talking about the adjuster for the blade, but of the iron cap which keeps the blade in place thank you all the same Mark
  10. thanks Jeffrey, that was worrying me I could of course buy one as a xmas present for my assistant and wait and see :-)))))))
  11. well thank you all for your answers and suggestions nobody really answered my question ie does the screw of this plane(pocket veritas) work well.? I bought the miniature veritas, which was not meant to be used true but just looked at , but nevertheless works if you add a piece of wood to tighten the screw in place. since the new pocket plane has the same fastening system I was wondering wether for this plane you can tighten the blade less than every minute. I like the ergonomic shape, I like that it is lighter than the stanley 102 or 61/2 or than the low anglel veritas, I like that is is shorter too, so thanks I think I will be having a new plane soon......
