It seems that there is little advantage to buying used when the asking price plus shipping is more than new.

Fred, I have been making boxes mostly and it seems that I have miters on just about everything I build. My last 10 items (some not posted yet) have been multi-sided items with trim, so I must have about 20 miters at least in most things I make.

hairy, I have built a shooting board and have tried using it on several projects, but I don’t have the correct plane or technique to be successful. I have tried several things to improve my result, but they all haven’t worked. I don’t think I have the patience to keep at it until I succeed. My plane is either a #4 or#5 and the handle is too small for my meat hooks. I’ll have to take a few pictures to show you what I’ve tried and I bet it will make you laugh. I have finally given up trying to get a good result.
