Introducing the Combi Shooter Shooting Board

We’d like introduce a new shooting board to our lineup, called the Combi Shooter.

The Combi Shooter, “Multi”.

The Combi Shooter gets its name because it combines two models of shooting board we currently offer into one. Starting with the Long Grain Shooter shooting board, we build it completely as a Long Grain Shooter including the Accessory Caul, then we add the Wide Board Shooter shooting board onto the very same platform, with all of its pivot fence capabilities.

The Combi Shooter in all cases is a complete Long Grain Shooter. The variables between each model are that the Wide Board Shooter aspect of the tool is available in three optional fence setting configurations; Basic which includes 45 and 90°, Basic Plus, which includes 45, 22.5, and 90°, and the Multi, which includes 45, 30, 22.5, 15 and 90° angles.

Like with all of our shooting boards, the Chute can be configured to work with a wide variety of different hand planes. For openers, We offer the Chute without Chute Adapters for use with most Stanley Bailey and Bedrock style hand planes, as well as wood hand planes. Please note that you can always upgrade our shooting boards to use Chute Adapter Kits later, if you purchase a board without them. All our shooting boards come standard with Chute Adapter mounting points and Chute Adapters are universally interchangeable on every shooting board model.

We also offer our shooting boards completed as “Enclosed Chute” Versions, which allow you to order them ready to use with the LN-51 Shoot Board Plane, LN-9 Iron Miter, Any brand of 62 LA Jack, The Veritas Shooting Plane, the Veritas LA Jack and the Veritas Shooting Sander. So whether you choose to have Chute Adapters or not, it’s always an option and every board can adapt to any plane at any time.

It is basically two shooting boards in one, with three different versions available for fence angle capacity, and seven different versions to accommodate the kind of hand plane(s) you wish to use on the Chute.

Like all of our shooting boards, the chute is milled to 0.001 inch straightness over the length, 0.001 inch coplanarity with the top, and the fence can be set to sub-minute angular accuracy, provided you have a protractor that provides that level of accuracy.

In terms of versatility, this shooting board pretty much has it all. Long Grain capacity to approximately 26 inches with the 90 degree fence, about 28 inches under the caul.

You can shoot rectilinear shapes with the 90 degree fence for high accuracy, or arbitrarily shaped objects by using the caul for fixturing. The size of the shooting platform will also allow you to shoot a very wide board to the 26 inch width range across the grain.

Using the Wide Board Shooter fence position, you can shoot comfortably to 18 inch widths on rectilinear shapes, and usually somewhere between 15 to 18 inch widths using most of the standard angles available on the model you choose.

It is an extremely versatile board in that it does so much in just one platform. It takes up less space in the shop and is somewhat less expensive than having to buy multiple boards to get the job done. It is a great shooting board to augment one of our standard sized shooting boards offering most of the capabilities you’ll need for larger scale work.

Both of the shooting board styles used on the Combi Shooter are popular designs we have offered for years, and are already more than proven in hundreds of shops around the world. The only difference being now, is that both shooting board designs are available in a highly configurable, all-in one-package. It is an extremely capable shooting board for those who need versatility, work on large-scale projects that require both styles of shooting board, and need to save space in the workshop.

This shooting board is also a very comprehensive tool for those interested in or working with veneers, large casework, small parts, like small boxes where precision and safety is an issue, and impossible with powered equipment and Lutherie where wood not only requires precision shapes but the insurance of zero damage to wood fibers as well. It is a high precision tool.
