    Have learned HOW to use a Stanley 45....making Gooves, rebates, dados, Tongue & Groove using the match cutters, and even using the Sash cutter. Have even made a couple other shapes of cutters, as needed. Haven't quite figured out the slitter, yet..not much use of it.

    Was taught woodworking, metal working, drafting, and sand-casting...in High School Ind. Arts classes back in the 60s....might have picked up a few things, along the way. Not only did we have to draw up a picture/plan of each type of wood joint, we also got out the hand tools, and made each joint...and received a grade on each. Have worked in machine shops, a cast iron foundry, and as a Carpenter. Even made and sold furniture from my 2-1/2 car garage, until it became too much. Now I mainly make items for friends and family, sometimes, even for myself. And, if you used a rubber air hose back then....I worked at a place that made those hoses ( and have COPD to show for it) as someone had to make the black, red, green, and even white polymer compound to extrude the layers that made up a hose.

    That's an impressive resume…few people who hang out on forums have had that kind of rigorous training. I'd like to see some of your work. But I haven't renewed my membership either and don't plan to, so I wouldn't be able to see it here anyway. Do you post on Instagram by any chance?

    I received an email from Steve Voigt today on another matter. He wrote it this morning but I only read it this evening. He mentioned that he will be at the Hearne Lumber open house (Oct 4,5) and will be showing his dado plane among others. It does not seem to be on his website, but it might be similar to one in the Seaton chest. He lives near Allentown.
    Warren; Steve has updated his website http://www.voigtplanes.com/dado.html
