It is a great technique. I made one a couple of years ago as  a guide for cutting or rather slicing ribs for one of my pistachio planes. It worked great.

Nice John,
Never seen one made out of brass before. That's going first class all the way. Wink

Posh indeed. I like it. That would work well with a scroll saw. The brass keeps the parts from getting ever so smaller as you go along. I guess the glue on the outside of the ply would do the same if you were useing a knife. Smiley

Gosh that's posh Smiley

Being a woody kind of guy I usually make 'em in 1/32 ply (or 1/16 it they are more than 4" long) then push a couple of pins in 'em, snip off on the back, a splodge of the devil's glue and you're off Wink

(More usually I just glue a couple of bits of sandpaper to the face for a similar effect)

This tip is older than I am (I remember seeing new Hudsons, Studebakers and Ramblers) but it still works.



When you want to cut out a bunch of identical ribs a brass template is handy. Use a jeweler's saw to cut it out and then file it to the finished outline. A couple of holes in the template sized to the headed pins you use ensure that it doesn't slip during cutting.
  

When you begin to fly you are issued two bags, one full of luck and an empty one for experience.&&The object is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
