    Convex shaves are tough to use. Mine is a Stanley 63x as opposed to the LN Boggs, but I believe the issues are similar. Like other people mentioned,...

    Brian,
    I'm a new hand tool woodworker, and I'm very interested in the dovetail saw. Just not familiar with the site and how transactions are processed. Can you fill me in on that?

    Thanks

    The hardest part was flipping the top over.

    I mounted mine "free" not inset.

    I've got a similar Patternmaker's vise from Emmert.

    It was a PITA to mount, and I don't regret it.

    The previous owner used it for decades, and you will too...
