    Thanks If you compare mine to Taft pierce at many thousands of pounds they’re very very cost effective even taking scraping time into account.

    For the diy market compared to what Richard King charged for straight edges mine are cheap but for most of us who scout out used stuff for peanuts I’m in trouble

    Batch to machine including my 50” . For some reason the Nordic countries and USA seem to take 99.9% of what I make 584E2DAC-A5D3-4A5C-B649-B27E98866B7B.jpeg D1E7772D-A5EB-49D6-834A-FF5B9AFC3624.jpeg

    @MattH lent me back a couple of Swiss straight edges I sold to him.
    I built up with pattern wax and got the foundry to cast in alloy some patterns for future use. I’ve modified the 500mm for dovetail bevel.
    Casting will need major fettling as Wyler didn’t do as nice castings! 0D1A657A-E2B1-4145-9150-8E9DA8C1CE4F.jpeg 9B15DFA4-4CFB-46D8-B03F-CAC8F24A71E7.jpeg

    I think that I could find a use for an 24" one but would probably struggle to lift it :(

    24" are light as anything. I can lift mine with one finger.

    It’s ones with wide sole and dovetail bevel that weigh!
