Last issue we published an article on making your own planer boards and now that you have made them the next thing you need are "release-clips".  The clips featured bellow are very functional, inexpensive and easy to make.  All the materials can be purchased at Canadian Tire for about $20 bucks and for that you can make 2 dozen clips.  The materials needed are; bag of clothes pins, package of "assorted gasket material", a glue called "GOOP" (I've used ABS cement but have found the GOOP works better), a package of shower curtain hooks and scissors.
