English Hand Tools with Jim Hendricks


Ripping with Skelton by Jim Hendricks

1 of 2  

After cleaning up the operating theatre and putting the instruments away it was time to take a perfectly dimensioned block and cut it precisely in half along its length!

This is a practical test of both tools in harmony and they worked perfectly!

I fitted the kerfing blade into the Luban-043 plough plane and made a kerf on all four sides of the block. That done, I was out with Mr. Seaton - my Skelton rip handsaw to cut the block in half.

Smack down the middle.

Ready for ripping.

My Skelton is out!
