Default The Vogt Super Chute No-Rock Runway with the L-N No. 51 and the Brese “Brute”.

The “No-Rock Runway” stabilizes the shooting board plane by putting it on a tool steel plate so that it won’t tip or rock during its travel forward.

The plate rides between slideways lined with acetal, the outer slideway being adjustable laterally via cap screws in oversized holes.

The outer edge of the plate has an acetal strip that bears against an adjustable channel of anodized aluminum.
The user now need only be concerned with holding the work piece steady and in even contact with the sole of the plane. The pushing hand has only pushing to deal with, not stabilizing the plane. It takes a lot of stress off of the wrist and elbow and allows the user to enjoy the process of shaving end grain without getting “bit” on the final pass if the plane tips slightly.

The L-N No. 51 is held securely to the plate by means of metal clamps on either end of the sole. Two screws accommodate the sloping cast surface.

The Brese “Brute”.

Plane maker Ron Brese has designed the model 125-38 Shooting Board Plane as a companion to the No-Rock Runway.

“2.125” wide iron at 38 degrees bevel down. Weight approximately 10 lbs. Great ergonomic control and enough mass for the most demanding shooting operations.”

The plate for Ron’s plane is tapped for screws and washers.

The No-Rock Runway for both planes is a special order item. Contact Tico Vogt at for ordering information.
