    Always add a hand plane or paipo building session onto the mat meet : )

    Extraction is a must, keep an eye on http://www.rutlands.co.uk/ as they have some great discounts every now and then.

    Next on the list is a set of Plano vertical clamps but it's going to take a little saving.

    Cheers pj
