Re: Question on strike buttons

John Aniano in central NJ
Oskar,

The few strike buttons I've seen were endgrain. A turned piece of lignum would be perfect. Or dogwood...

I can't comment on placement on the front end of the plane, sorry. How about positioning the button centered on the rear? Works well there too.

John
