I’m sorry to say that I got into a right old self debate conundrum over hand tools.
Now I still marvel at the amount of time and effort people spend making jigs for their routers and so on. However I thought it was “against the hand tool” philosophy to use aids.
After reading Mr Krenovs book about his musings and seeing Mr Sellers aid for chopping mortices I finally took the plunge and purchased Mr Barrons dovetail guide (1:7 of course!). I have to say it’s fantastic all my joints came out parallell to each other. I happened to be using my Veritas dovetail saw and it stopped against the back at exactly the depth I needed.
So this Topic is about the potential “snobbery” of hand tool woodwork and the funk we can get ourselves into.
Have you experienced the same?
