I have been having difficulty getting my Master Airscrew balsa stripper to cut evenly throughout, was getting wider strips at the beginning than the end. I cured this problem with the little tool in the pictures. It is a piece of 1/4 x 4 x 24 basswood with a piece of 1/4 x 1/4 x 24 basswood glued on. The space for the cutter body is 1" in and is exactly enough room for the tool. Getting the 1/4 square straight is the key to success here. The Airscrew cutter is then set to be over the square stock and adjusted to the width needed. Also set the cutter blade to just short of cutting the strip off and turn the strip end for end and complete the cut. Once you have a straight edge on the piece to be cut, you will have a straight edge always after that.
