|Russ' 51 Pattern||Russ' 51 casting|
|Rob's shooting board casting!
||Rob's quadrant and hold down castings
Galoots Russ Allen and Rob Kempinski teamed up via the internet
to make the shooting board and shooting board plane shown in
Jim Kingshott's book
Making and Modifying Woodworking Tools (ISBN 0-946819-32-7).
Russ made the shooting board plane pattern while Rob made the
shooting board pattern, hold down pattern and quadrant pattern.
Rob had the shooting board, quadrant, and hold down cast in iron at a foundry
in Houston. Russ had the shooting board plane cast in iron at a foundry
in Batavia, IL.
One cool pattern making tradition was maintained on this project:
The guy who made the pattern received his casting free. The cost
of his casting was split among the other people that received
copies of the casting. There is nothing quite like getting a
copy of your wooden pattern in metal for free!
