I need to get better pics of these in use, but I thought I would share. I needed a solution for edge planing fairly thin stock that was too narrow to be worked well in the vise. I came up with these. The different circle radii allow for different thicknesses to be worked easily. Stock is placed between two of these boards ad worked easily. The really nice part is that if you have to work several components of the same size the swap out is very fast (pull one out drop the next one in).

They were easy to make, drill three holes in a board and rip down the center. Then East the corners so you don scrape your knuckles on them.

Ingenius Ryan. Simple and effective and low cost. Nice work.

Pretty cool. I was thinking 2 boards with 1 V cut in each would have worked too. Accommodates different sized stock that way too.
