Setting Up and Using A Shooting Board by

A shooting board (sometimes called a “chute board”) is a jig that is used to dimension boards with a handplane. For example, trimming the end grain of a board used in a box or a drawer, or jointing the edge grain of a thin board (particularly those ½” and under).

It will square end- and edge grain, and it can be adapted to shoot mitres with the addition of a mitre fence. The countertop is ideal as it is flat, heavy and the melamine is smooth. A common question is whether the plane will cut away and destroy the side of the runway when shooting. Yes, the plane will remove part of the side during this step. It will, instead, complete an important constructional requirement. If you look carefully at the sole of your plane you will take note that the blade does not run across the full width but ends about 1/8″ from the sides. The blade runs above this fence, and alongside the runway wall. Be careful – you do not want to set your plane for too deep a cut when you take the first cut that creates the side fence. This will avoid any possible problems that can – and do – arise when the edge of the runway is not perfectly straight, or is worn from use. Trying to plane away a 1-2” thick piece of hardwood end grain is likely to lead to damage to the wood in the form of breakout, or damage to the blade in the form of chipping, or both. The glued-and-screwed construction is very strong and these jigs are a means to an end, not the end in themselves.

The mechanism is simply two bolts, one that is fixed and acts as a pivot (closest to plane), and the other that sits in an enlarged hole (a 1/4″ diameter bolt sitting in a ½” diameter hole) and held by a butterfly nut. As with the flat board, there is a small ledge at the front to enable it to be used like a bench hook. While the ramped board does not offer a “real” skew (the angle is too low for that), the skewed blade still enters the wood progressively, rather than all at once. The other reason widely given is that a ramped board will allow a larger area of the blade to be use, so enabling it to remain sharp longer. There are different ways to attach the mitre fence to the shooting board. Since this mitre jack requires being square in two planes, this is a difficult construction to get spot on. The #52 board is a cast iron base with a track along which runs the #51 plane. Interestingly, it uses the wide blade of a #5 ½ (2 3/8” wide), but the frog is the same size as a #3. Essentially, these are collectors’ items and command high prices in the market place. A low cutting angle slices end grain more easily, and the bevel up configuration has an advantage in this area. The shooting board plane obtains its registration from the side of the shooting board’s runway. The #62 is quite a light plane (think #5 size), but it remains a good choice when trimming softwood end grain. It does a pretty good job on hardwood, but there are better in that regard as this vintage plane has a reputation for having a fragile mouth.

I find these preferable on very small pieces where delicacy is especially needed. The “clunk” comes from a blade which projects too deeply for a fine cut. The other possible cause is where the board is pushed too far across the fence into the blade. Another is when the bed/mouth are not aligned and the blade is poorly supported. This permits one to simultaneously push the plane forwards and against the runway fence. After a shaving is removed, the work piece must be pushed again into the plane. So many strive to get the fence edge aligned with the edge of the workpiece. When planing endgrain on a board clamped in a vise, it is not necessary to use a backup board to prevent breakout. With both the boards in a vise and on the shooting board it is better to shave or pare a bevel at the rear of the board, then plane the board until this is removed. Begin with chamfering the end of the board that is the nominated reference side. The arrow in the above picture points to the spot where the chamfer tapers.

It has struck me that few discuss how one tunes and uses these wonderfully useful tools. Typically, it involves planing end- or edge grain on boards. While it is possible to develop a jig for any angle, the most common uses are in squaring or mitering. This involves setting the blade in the plane to the expected depth of cut, and running it along the side of the runway as if you were shooting a board. When you run the plane down the runway for the first time, you remove a shaving depth from the side. This lip thereafter becomes the combined fence and depth stop for the plane. If your blade does run across the full width, such as with a rabbet or shoulder plane, find another as these cannot leave the important lip and will keeping slicing away the side fence of the runway. The depth of the fence also determines how far from the side of the table the plane rides.

This obviates the need to plane away a slither of the fence as part of a “running in” procedure. It is not necessary to plane away this end of the fence if you plan ahead. Set the depth of the blade for a fine shaving, and rest the end of the fence against this. Finally, add a batten at the front underside to function as a bench hook or for secure clamping in a bench vise. If the fence is too slippery, then add a layer of 360 grit sandpaper. This does produce a less jarring contact compared with a straight blade on a flat shooting board. My preference is to connect it to the front of the adjustable fence, since it is then possible to make fine adjustments to the mitre fence (in the same way one might make adjustments to the straight fence). They are great tools – serious tools – but the cost and limited availability places them out of the reach of most. The simple answer is that you can use just about any plane, however some are more comfortable and better suited for the purpose. Below are some of my preferences from my experience (so note that this does not denote a “best of all planes” selection). Its high cutting angle (60 degree bedding) managed to cut hardwood end grain well enough.The recessed “rings” on the sides are not decoration – they are finger grips. When the mouth is lower than the toe, the blade ends up being extended further to make a cut. The blade vibrates and this leads to chatter on end grain – not so much one large clunk as a series of small clunks (should that be clunkettes?). My right hand pushes the plane along the runway fence and into the work piece. This does indeed work – and is a popular technique to avoid breakout – but it is not the only way. The advantage of this method is that it enables one to mark and work to the precise depth of the planing.Second, butt the end of the board against the fence and chamfer the end with the plane on the shooting board. The third step is to turn the board around, rest the reference side against the fence, and plane to the end of the chamfer. This is not as secure a method as using the plane as it is more difficult to slice the edge squarely.

If the test isn’t large enough how is it able to show your speed?

Most of us have been a part of the trial for the provisioning of the product. Very disappointed to see the exact same speed as a normal connection. It’s possible that your service hasn’t yet been provisioned to allow the new higher speeds. Concerning, however other users have stated a good point, 15mb does not allow enough time for full throttle. I even tried there supplied dongle and that was a disaster only got 3-4mbit!

Did you already have a capable modem before the speed packs were launched?

I want to know if going to the new high speed plan is going to be just as congested in the evenings. Optus could have such a killer product, but they have chosen to cripple it.Looks like they are using two or three channels for downloads. They are currently using 1 upstream channel & 4 downstream channels. All true, but do you actually understand what you’re reading though?

I personally agree with your opinion on the lack of upstream bandwidth, you’re one of the few people even here on whirlpool (home of the ‘power user’ that it is) who find it unsatisfactory. It’s one of those things, that unless you have used a higher upload bandwidth, you probably don’t know what you are missing.

With normal use, there is no reason that your stone should crack. Therefore, it is important to have your stone installed by qualified installers. This means that if it is left unsealed then staining can occur. To avoid this it is important to seal your natural stone regularly and clean it promptly. The adhesive that binds the stone together in engineered stone creates its own permanent seal that protects your surface. The best choice of stone for your kitchen counter will depend on how your counter is going to be used as much as the look you want for the room.

It is important to regularly reseal your marble or granite surfaces to keep them protected as much as possible. Although it is made up of crushed natural stone, the adhesive that binds it together creates a seal, protecting it from staining without the need for additional sealant or protection.
