This is a simple jig for edgebreaking after instead of before a workpiece is made.Particularly after fixing together tenon and mortise,because with this jig you can reach till the edges.The blade of this jig is a thick razorblade as used in some mini-planes.The lenght of this jig is only 3″, so you can afterwards treat very small workpieces.
You can make this jig from scrap (beech/oak wood or waterresistant plywood)that you can fix together with screws. This needs not much time.
The angle of the blade is 30 degrees.
To fasten the blade I attached a little piece of wood that is wider that the jig. This is to prevent your thumb and forefinger from slipping off the jig. If you want greater edgebreaking, it’s better to make two of those jigs, so you don’t have to set the blade twice.

I like the simplicity of these edgebreakers and thanks for the suggestion of the angle you use. Thanks for the post. I bought a few pieces of steel to make my own simple tools. Thanks!
