I have been looking for a design to utiluse my QS 62 LA plane. I have seen the Tico Vogt board and have purchased a sheet of 1/4" UHMWPE sheet as a sliding surface for the side of the plane and part of a plastic T-square for a bearing strip. A ramp should aid the cutting action and spread the wear on the plane blade. Adjustable work support surfaces, bolts and T-nuts for adjustment. Magswitches or other magnets to help hold the other angled jigs, eg. Donkey. I shall probably use Baltic Birch ply for the major parts. Any tips and advice please.

New sloping shooting board works well at 90 and 45 degrees.

Mike - if you use the "Img" button when creating your post, the images will appear in your post.

Some photos of a handle to clip onto the plane. Magnets help the tight friction fit.
Are you sure that's a "QS 62 LA plane" ? :D

Oh, and I see you got "img" working for you. =D>

Thanks BB. I am a teacher, so I have to be a learner also. Well spotted, the plane is a school no.5, I keep my QS62 at home, the 62 gives good finish, but if I sharpen and hone the no.5, it really cuts well. I am polishing the ply handle at the moment during my lunch break. I will convert a spare no.5 for fulltime shooting for the kids at school. No front handle or tote as you need to keep up the sideways pressure against the Tufnol side strip.
