Default Re: Building the Lingerie Chest

Thanks LR

I had not used the #66 for some time, preferring instead to use a really simple scratch stock, such as the Hack type. For beads, the Hack is OK, but one has to watch the formation of the bead as it is possible to over cut it. This remained the danger with the cove. Although working to scribed lines, it would be easy just keep cutting at this type lacks a depth stop. The surface end result can be quite rough. The #66 has a built-in depth stop, which partly ensures that the cuts are even, but importantly when it stops cutting, it starts burnishing. This smooths and polishes the surface to a plane-like finish.

Regards from Perth
