    How do you store your router plane?

    Thread Starter: Andrew Pitonyak

    I ordered a shiny new Large Veritas router plane with a fence and a few blades. Any pointers to a build thread or pictures of how you store your router plane? I know that Steve has a detailed build for his. In my mind, Derek had something as well, I should go look for that. I might as well...

    Saw advice

    Thread Starter: Blake M Williams

    Thread Starter: Bill Webber

    I bought a nice set of hollows and rounds. They are in great shape and seem relatively newly made. So far I haven't found any information for this maker. Marked R. A. Vaughan S. C., also known as Ashley Vaughan. Anyone know anything about this maker?
