Yes you are correct, but I reckon two pieces of scrap timber spot of super glue and one magnet £3, and I've got some money for some more tools. Post the picture of my idea later today.waterhead37":2vekp19s said:Devon,
If as I suspect :wink: you are wanting to make a magnetic jig for guiding your saw, have a look at this offering from Brimarc/Veritas http://www.brimarc.com/home.php3?page=p ... pc=C_106_3
I think Andy(Deedee) has one and likes it.
OTOH, how many practice cuts have you made?
Definitely YES to that DW. Just be very careful that you take it down slowly and regularly dip the chisel in cold water to stop it heating too much and thus losing the hardness. You need to avoid 'blueing' the cutting edge which will heat up very quickly as it is thin.devonwoody":alyyzq70 said:Seen the ubeat thread where Derek Cohen is using a grinding table, Do you reckon for a small job like above could use my belt mobile sander (fixed in the vice upside down) to do that small job?
Glad to hear the practice has started DW Are you following the line OK?devonwoody":3kiwv3ra said:OK Tony,
I've started the practice cutting ( 24 cuts yesterday) before the wife reminded me about the spring garden season having started.
Do you think it is worth while whacking the chisel down on the shoulder line first (full size) and then marking up the dovetail to match this chisel
