Re: Tools: First strip build - first question

Thanks to all. I'll try to cover the feedback so far given:
If I don't mention your suggestion, I already have one. I'll add that I have a spokeshave and Japanese saw.

I have planned a trip to Harbor Freight for more (inexpensive) spring clamps. Never too many.
Laser alignment holes and a laser sound like good ideas. I'm hoping to CAD then CNC my forms so accurate alignment holes should be easy.

Note to Nick: If I CAD/CAM my forms, I will respect your position on digital files and will not share them.

I'll consider the foam longboard. I had been planning to make a wooden one. Not ready to buy a new ROS till my Bosch dies. If I buy more scrapers, it will be the carbide.

Bosch T101AO Jigsaw Blades: Sounds good.

EDIT: Have a stapler -- might buy a better one. Have a jigsaw, not the best, and will consider if I don't CNC forms. Have an existing rack system I built that will easily handle strips.

One tool I'm pondering is the side rabbit plane. Essential, highly recommended, or just nice to have?

Thanks again to all the recommendations and any yet to be posted.
