Bamboo, DynaGlide, and Handworks 2017

Bamboo is now used for the bearing and running surfaces on the Vogt Shooting Board. It is sealed with shellac, followed by Osmo Polyx-Oil, and then wax.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I use a product called DynaGlide Plus Dry Lube Cleaner to remove metal swarf from the Bamboo Runway and bearing strips. It also lubricates the plane sole and sides. You can see a video here.

 

 The final step in honing the secondary bevel for my shooting plane irons is to push them into the end grain of a Maple stick charged with 0.5 micron diamond paste and sliding side to side. This ensures that the burr is removed, while not dubbing the edge as stropping might. Shooting end grain puts a premium on having a keen edge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve got a good line up of shooting boards ready for Handworks 2017, as well as Planing Stops and Clamp Clips . One is especially adopted for a wood shooting plane that Ron of Brese Plane will have for the event.
