    Simple Wedge Planing Stop

    I made this handy and very simple planing stop holder/jig. Its my take on a "birds mouth" wedge holder. I use it more often than I first thought I would.

    Old timer showed me this type of vice actually the oldest known vice, and been using one ever since.Your one is actually missing one small feature ,a step on the edge of the wedge that hooks the work and tightens the wedge as work is pushed against it ,here is a photo of my much used benchstop vice attacjed to a sheet 18mm meranti ply which is, when turned over is a homemade rail for my rail saw made in a moment of need and both have been invaluable, clearer than my description

    That is just brilliant! And this is the reason I really like this forum - getting info like that is invaluable for me. As soon as I saw your picture I understood the usuage of it. Big thanks!
    I love that combination with a rail to a tracksaw! :-)

    They are handy jigs.

    You could use a long grain wedge like that one to tighten your block sander (using belt sander belts). Cut out a section near one end of the block on a diagonal about 8 deg & make the corresponding wedge longer. tap it in to tighten the belt then remove excess each end so that it can be used in the palm of your hand also. Simply tap out the wedge when changing grits or replacing belts.

    cheers

    Interesting as they have been around for centuries. I think that that particular one(dekeros) probably doesn't need the birds mouth (as traditional) as the wedge is not straight (deliberate or by chance) and is concave along the holding edge thus working like a double cam.

    just my take on it. thanks for posting.

    cheers

    Thanks for the input. :-) Must be the pictures angle but the holding side is straight on the wedge, but I like the idea that it could have been concave.
    I think the suggested step or notch from Daturat100r would improve my stop because I hade a few pieces slide (very few). I have seen many different takes on this (with two wedges as the most common). Oh! and I like the usage with the belt sanders. Wedges are fast and very versatile :-)

    The hook is invaluable as you don't require another tool (hammer/mallet) to lock/unlock the workpiece,a simple slide into position and it locks tight
