This Hand Forged Planing Stop is a simple but extremely versatile work holding solution. Convenient for quickly keeping and switching out boards for hand planing, or when used in conjunction with a shop made Doe's Foot it is able to keep even the trickiest of shapes steady. Ideally mounted into a separate wood block that you tightly mortise into your bench top (see last picture for details, I used a 2.5x2.5x10" block), so that the stop can be raised or lowered with a few strikes of a wood mallet.
great as either an alternative or as an additional work holding solution to a tail vise.
planing stops are made to order and hand forged, as such there will be some variation from piece to piece.
