this thing is ace, no more laddered and messed up foam, especially good for getting in the nose curve
This little ripper has made things really easy with stringers in concaves. Not cheap but very good quality and easy to use.
The item got to my house faster than I could believe. Once I put it to work it would dig into my finished product more than normal. May be a user error but I have now gone and purchased a curved Japanese planer and it does not dig into the board.
This is the way tools used to be made. Made to last a life time great little product, almost a piece of art, love it.
