    Spiers number 1...blinged

    About how much time did you have in producing the plane sole? Did you resort to any power tools for any parts of the process? Thanks in advance! T.

    Beautiful plane! You should be doing this commercially!

    If the gaps really bother you, why not do a repair that is reversible (or at least will not cause further potential degradation? Some expoxies will match to color of the plane body quite well. JB Weld has an aluminum colored one, that comes to mind. Mix up, fill the voids and lightly scrub...

    Paramo Vices

    I believe in Scott Landis's book on workbenches he included a bit of a discussion of Paramo vises. If I remember correctly, he stated the company was founded by former employees of Record, describing them as almost copies of the latter, except with far more hand finishing. I can't recall...

    Clifton needs to make a router plane

    The tooling cost for a router similar to the Walke-Moore tool, would be very high, for casting and associated parts. It is a lovely product, but to produce, it would have to be a labor of love. In other words, quite risky. However, to do a fully machined product on a CNC, would be more cost...

    Making a brass infill plane (Hattori Hanzo, DP)

    I believe similar files can be had, under the name "Iwasaki". A number of woodworking resellers handle them, as well as Amazon. On Amazon, there are many Chinese knock-offs of the Japanese "Dragon" rasp. I bought one, maybe $10 USD, and it works superbly, like a 13 grain Auriou.

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    Works similar to the spruce available here in the states! Sanding is not a solution, as it gums paper readily. Sold as "construction lumber". What other screen names does "Seb" use?

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    I'm not sure how it is in the UK, but in the States, we live in a very litigious society. Half of TV commercials are attorneys "fishing" for clients for class action lawsuits, with their spiel beginning "...you deserve..." (other half of commercials are drug companies". As a manufacturer...

    I capitalized God, and was posted with reverence, referring to my birth name instead of a screen name.

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    Gave me a name and my chums have given a raft of other names, most not safe to post.

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    I use my God given name. At least one forum in the states requires that. The upside is you would not post anything that you wouldn't say to a person's face. The downside is you would not post anything that you wouldn't say to a person's face. I'm puzzled by this Sebastian goomer changing his...

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    It is getting hard to follow this thread, without a written scorecard (said in jest), but there are bits of truth in every post. Maybe Eshmiel hit on it best of all, with his phrase "...unsharp plane blades...". Venturing into any endeavor requires a bit of instruction, whether your teacher is...
