Raamtang

Introduction: Raamtang

Dutch ingenuity at its best, simple but so efficient



Meaning wooden vise in dutch the raamtang is use to hold board on edge, by the power of of jaws and wedges.

It will become really handy for edge treatment such as molding , rabetting or plowing a tongue and groove

Made from leftover wood it is a must for hand tools lover!!!

    Could we have a bit more flesh on the bones of the introduction?

    What is a raamtang, and why should we want to make one?
