Great idea on how you managed the ramp, I have been wanting to make a ramping SB for myself but I have been complexed on how to do the ramp with the tools I have, your solution while simple totally escaped me, but now I have no excuse. I love simple solutions to problems and this is another reason why I come here more than any other site, the collective knowledge here is one of my best resources.

Thanks Anji and Joey. For Joey, bear in mind that the ramp is actually sanded perfectly flush with the table. I glued it on, cut it at an angle at the bandsaw, and then sanded it (adhesive sandpaper on a piece of granite) so that the “ramped” portion sits flush with the bench top – the portion that is flat on the bench is resting flat there.

This provides a lot more stability and connectivity to the UHMW that it is wedged between. Also, it allows for some pressure with the plane against the board. This was a process discovered through trial and error.

Thanks again for your comments. This thing is a breeze to use. Love it.

Have your say...
