A few months ago, while filming a DVD in his school, I took the opportunity to ask Roy a question that I couldn’t find an answer to. He shared his advice, and I’ve been eager to test it out.

He taught me that even though I already had a wooden wedge I could add a second metal wedge (at a diagonal) to add extra tightening power.

I’m happy to report that Roy Underhill’s advice worked very well. Thanks Roy!
