A gift as precise as the work.
The HP-10 60 Degree V-Groove Profile makes a sharp “V” groove that can be used as a design element or as a way to save your bacon when you have a seam that is not perfect. Simply control the “V” groove depth with the depth skids and cut a “V” groove on the unattractive seam to hide it – ironically that is called a “reveal”.
You can also make 60 degree chamfers or full equilateral triangle strips that can be used for inlays or grouped in sixes to make incredibly strong linear rods (think fly rods here). There are two ways to control depth of cut, one can use the HP-10 Depth Skids (that comes with the HP-10 Dado Kit "Works") or by fastening shims to the sole (using double stick tape).
To sharpen any of the irons, all you need to do is hone the bevel surface at 30 degrees, no special hones required.
Using the HP-10 “V” Groove Profile requires the use of a fence or guiding board clamped to your stock. We recommend using the HP-10 Guide Fence when your cuts are less than 3" from the edge of your stock. If you have a need for a "V" groove that exceeds the capacity of the fence system you will need to clamp a guide in place. The side of the HP-10 body will ride against this reference and your cuts will be as straight as your reference edge.
