  1. Thank you for clarifying. Everything is much clearer now.
  2. I am intrigued by your jig. Is the plate under the plane glass or plastic? Thanks for posting and answering my question.

    Never use vice-grip pliers when a hemostat is called for.
  4. I have some useful info for you, but I am not in my library at present. I will post later today.
  5. I have the T-4 along with short& long knife jigs,plus the flat platform jig for edging scrapers etc. One can easily almost double the cost of the T-4 unit by purchasing the necessary jigs. I also own a Worksharp 3000 which I have equipped with the new CBN wheels. Very pleased with the results at about 1/2 the cost of the Tormek & jigs.
  6. Fibbonacci might be our friend here.
  7. Always have a plan(let's call it A); if that doesn't work out, figure out more plans, working down the alphabet. Social work was my plan A, but luthiery was my plan B! Now let me tell you how to make a small fortune making violins; start with a large fortune...go from there, enjoying life all the way!!
  8. While we're discussing clamps would you describe your jack-screws? Seems like a good thing to add to my clamp arsenal.
  9. All this talk about the perceived lack of quality in Chinese instruments vs other presumably superior european instruments leads me to suggest a rereading of "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance".
  10. But there is nothing more superior than a Brough!
  11. "The usual suspects." lol
  12. Aren't these molds commonly referred to as "skeleton" molds? Asking for a friend.
  13. I can hardly wait until Italian archaeoligists discover a hidden cache of Tony's spreadsheets!
  14. Jacob,thanks for your thought provoking response to this problem.
