I was having trouble clamping my low angle smoother blade in the side clamp guide. So instead of shelling out for the Veritas MKII, I cut down some scrap brass. The clamps are made of 3”x1” brass strips. one side it taped 1/4-20 with 1/2” long screws to clamp the plane blade. Pretty simple and it works great!

Angle guide is made of mahogany. It’s from a design I saw on LJ a while back. Reversible 1/8” blade stop with an extra 1/8” on one side to set for micro bevel.
