... for a photograph because the Veritas miniature plane is
leading the pack followed by a Stanley 95 and then an AMT, and
serving as rear guard is a Veritas model.
The Stanley 95 was patented in 1912 and the others are much more
recent knockoffs. Do they trim the edge of s board a perfect 90
degrees? You bet they do.
One of my mentors, Bruce Debo, used to carry a 95 in a side
pocket of his overalls and whip it out and run the edge of a
board and put it back in his pocket in only a few seconds.
I use them in making boxes out of wood up to 3/4ths inch in
thickness. These are really handy for a beginner to use as a
follow up to a long jointer for taking off a single shaving to
make sure an edge is perfectly square from end to end.
