OK, I'm quoting meself here, but it brings us to another potential rule...Espedair Street":2gr3j4hq said:d'you do any turning? in which case, calipers would be useful.
(edit - that's calipers as in bow-legged dividers, rather than measuring ones...in case you hadn't sussed that already, which I'm sure you had)
Courtesy of Chris; my prize for being a smart-a*** about ways to cut a dado. Actually come in handy an amazing amount - thanks, Chris. Here's the site. Go off on a tandem, or even a tangent if the weather's not so good for cycling; finding out about things you didn't even know exist is half the point.Noely":14abjmr1 said:Alf, sorry to go off on a tandem...but where'd you get the bevel rule, something "...land Tool" on it?
Hmm, ok, I'll believe you. I just have a very insistent memory of a Jester Toolworks 'v' style marking knife, with the blade made from a spare/bust/blunt beyond repair HSS planer/thicknesser blade. If I could be pineappled, I'd look for the thread - it's either here, or on the msn group.Alf":8wd6t9cq said:Nope, no double bevel marking knife here. Keep thinking about pulling the trigger on the Veritas
Yep, that's the Left handed one to the right of the Sloyd. Never a V type though, 'cos it wouldn't have worked with the HSS area of the blade. Here we are.Espedair Street":6ruqusda said:I just have a very insistent memory of a Jester Toolworks 'v' style marking knife, with the blade made from a spare/bust/blunt beyond repair HSS planer/thicknesser blade.

I canna remember if it was Kirby (tho given Chris's post.. I have my doubts) or DC who recommends a single bevel, necessitating having both left and right handed varients. The logiv being that you mark the line with the bevel facing into the waste. That way you're not crushing the shoulder of the face you want to keep; you can place a tool right on the line with confidence that you're not slightly over it...interesting comment Mike - I've never used a 'v', so don't know shortcomings - enlightenment please?
