Default Ski jig

Thank you Harry for your great instructions on making ski jigs. I'm so excited to start using mine and just wanted to share some pictures of how it turned out...

Harry will be proud, Gregg (except he is such a mild humble person)...

One of the more difficult task in boat building is scarfing boards together. These will certainly make the job much easier.

Greg, what can I say, they look better than mine! Now for a little project, how about a small sign with raised letters similar to those that I've posted. If the plunge base is going to remain on the skis, removing the sub-base will allow that extra depth of cut required for some projects. I'm certain that you will be much happier with this construction than if you had taken the "easy" way out and used allthread.

I also would like to know where you got the rods and the dimensions of the rods.

Neiltsubota and Router Roman, I did not make any of this, it was made by a friend of mine that is a maintance supervisor for a large local factory. I will find out the demensions and get back with you. He did tell me on the plunge router base plate, the holes were cone shaped and he needed to drill them out a little bit. Not sure what else I would ever need them cone shaped for so I said hell yes drill them out....just FYI
