Plane Till Magnets

My plane till is handy, has held the working planes for several years without incident but....There's that damn but again...Because it is not at a high angle I've worried about someone or something coming along and knocking one or more of the planes out of the till.

A couple of days ago I decided to build in a little insurance by mounting a rare earth magnet in each slot. The magnets might not prevent all chances of the planes hitting the floor but it will be much harder to dislodge one now.

As always with simple fixes like this one you wonder what took so long.

    You might consider adding another magnet for the longer planes, if you aren't quite confident yet in their security.
