Planing the edge of a long board perpendicular to its face is a real challenge. To make the job easier, I built a guide that attaches to the side of my plane with rare earth magnets. Now jointing an edge is much easier. I simply alter my grip to take full advantage of the square-cornered support that the fence offers.—Frank Penicka

    Made one last night, used it today and what a great tool. I know one should be able to plane square without a tool but that takes consistent practice and if you are a hobbyist like me and don’t plane square edges every day the skill will get dull. This tools removes the frustration. Thanks for the idea.
