    Good mitre joint and two rows of biscuits and you are done. You could certainly make a single use fixture in your TS to cut this with no fuss.

    I like the fact that my hand is typically closer to the cutting edge when using Japanese saws but with the woods that I use in my shop and the need to have a robust saw that will eat about anything...

    I would be very sceptical as to the usefulness of the plywood platen. Personally I'd remove it and go with the 20" disc. I use my General 100-5 disc quite a lot for metal and wood.

    Fit to be tied.

    I have a LN #7 pre-production plane. You couldn't convince me that a #8 would be an upgrade. BD bench planes work. I used my #7 to joint a 5.5' joint today. Perfection.

    When I am injured I definitely have a rest or go easier. Aches and pains almost always feel better after stretching and a good workout. Keep moving or freeze up for me.

    I think that Triceps would come into play as well. It is the griping of the plane body that would lead to "the elbow" I think.
