Default Did these ever make it past the prototype stage?


Been sorta keeping an eye out for it and thought I'd check? I took a class with Paolini last year and meant to ask him about it but the class ran long and after standing on my feet all day was ready to get out of there and forgot to see if he still had them.

A few of us have been emailing with Rich about the honing guides. I was really keen to try them, but they've been put on a back burner for a while. Maybe this year? Fingers crossed!

It's obviously similar to the Eclispse that is everywhere. I've never understood why none of them are built to go to 0 or close to it for the really small chisels. Seems simple enough...........

The one in this video doesn't look like it will do really short blades. Looks like more material needs to come off the bottom front.

The prototype needs a few changes to work the way I think it should. It's about 15 months behind schedule.

The mini coping sled still expected to ship Jan 2013?

Really looking forward to it and thought I'd check

It's still looking like it. If any of you are going to the Baltimore show this weekend, tell Wayne to get on it. He's the one spearing head production on the Mini Coping Sled.
