Frank Stetzer’s ”Slash” Jig

Stetzer_slash1

Stetzer_slash2

Japanese rodmaker Max Satoh invented the “slash jig,” a form for holding the rough strip so you get the initial 60 degree angle.  I took Max’s idea and added toggle closures.  Of course, you want to hold the spokeshave more level than I’m doing here for the camera.

The outer jaw is fixed to the base and the inner jaws move on some metal rods to keep the jaws parallel.

 

Frank Stetzer’s Nodeless Splice Jig

Stetzer_splice1

When I build a nodeless rod, I do the initial scarf joint on a little benchtop bandsaw with a sliding jig.  There is a hole in the back where the strip passes through and a low “fence” (hard to see in the picture; on the left of the strip) that holds the strip at the correct angle.  Use a fine-toothed blade.

Once the bandsaw does this step, I go to the scarfing block where 2 or 3 plane passes and the scarf is ready for gluing.

 

Frank Stetzer’s Bokstrom Plane Leveler

Stetzer_wheels1

I like John Bokstrom’s “training wheels” plane leveler.  A real “poor man’s” beveler.  It helps keep those angles close to 60 degrees.

 

Don Schneider’s Heat Gun Nozzle

This heat gun fan attachment modification makes the opening about 6" long for more even heat on the nodes.
