    The handle has been just roughly added in, that will definitely change shape.
    I canít seem to make my pics appear any bigger on the iPad, but if you click on them they should open up to a bigger size. If I ever get to log back in with the iMac, I will change them.

    Itís not as curvaceous as ďThe Body ď, but I might be able to add some frills and lace to help it look a bit more appealing.

    Do you have to click on them to make them big Doug ? Or are they already big in the thread ?

    Brad, I click on them and they fill about 3/4 of the screen.

    That's how most pics on the forum work for me but usually not quite so big as your ones.

    I had to go into town today, I drove past the salvage yard on my way to get some acid for the pool, and thought I would see if they had any brass sheet hiding somewhere.
    I got lucky with a 400mm square X 3mm piece that was once a lid for something, its got some holes drilled in it. But should be good for a few planes.
    He charged me $40, tried to get him down to 30, but he wouldnt be in it. The banter I get in that place is priceless, so I dont mind paying a bit too much everytime I go there .

    So looks like I am changing tack again and having brass sides after all.
    Its got some scratches on one side, I gave it a buff with a wheel on the angle grinder to see how deep they are. Will take a bit of sanding to get them out, but if I put them on the inside, they shouldnt be too obvious.

    I buffed up a piece of 6mm stainless as well, I will cut the bottom out of this.

    I thought I had a couple of dovetail markers already, but a search of the sheds couldnt locate them, so I got a chance to play with some nice tools while I made one .

    A blatant takeoff from Dereks "Inthewoodshop" article. I used some 20mm aluminium angle, because that was what I found without looking too hard.
    I will make some brass or stainless ones another day, this one will do the job for the time. I went with 6:1.

    I cant find my good scriber either, had to use a marking knife to mark it out.
    A scriber might get made tomorrow for use on the brass and stainless.

    I found I can log on with google chrome on the iMac, so I can post my photos a bit easier.

    Nothing like using nice tools to make a nice (hopefully) tool

    I am hoping the lack of tablecloth will be overlooked because of the inclusion of the shopmade dovetail marker .
    Now if only the postie would deliver that parcel with the new tablecloth in it, I wouldnít have to worry

    Looking at those glamorous tools and wondering how that bevel gauge works. I can't figure out what that knurled knob does.

    It's how you lock the slide angle on the adult version of the tool.
