Project Information

Taper tenon handplane jig
tenons to fit any reamer.

Most of my reamers are antique or home made, so to go and buy a tenon cutter for each would be impossible, the bought once are quite a few, so it would be expensive - so this is where this idea came, by thinking can I make a simple solution to this…

This post is from the blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/131956

Pictures:
1. The jig.
2. Scrap with reamered hole.
3. Making the jig.
4. Shaves.
5. Tapered dowel.
6. Less is more.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or legs to sit on.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Mads, my old boss said you always appreciate a tool better if you make it your self. With all your hand made tools, you have to be totally appreciative working with them in you shop….............nice work, my friend…......Cheers, Jim

I have a beer for you tonight and wish you were here to have one too!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys,
This is one really made me think why did I not think of that before, so I was happy to see the positive comments.

Dave Polaschek, honestly I was proud of this one, laugh. Big thanks.
lew, I could not agree more. ;-)
Calmudgeon, big smile thanks.
Phil277, yabadabadooo!
Andre, yeps, we can't have them rusty. :)
Peteybadboy, thanks. Love your LJ name.
Jim Jakosh, Ohhh I would love to share that beer, I'll open one here for you. Yes I do often feel lucky and blessed to have a shop full of self made tools, but even more happy for all the skills that my hands learned making them, a creative freedom, when the hands do what the mind tells them.
robscastle, Laughs, keep it spinning.
Rob Drown, A big warm happy smile here thanks.
swirt, less is really more at times. Thank you der Swirt.

Best of my thoughts to all of you,
Mads
