for fixing that I would go with small brass panhead screws, screwed right through, when the panhead is flush, file the head off so it just looks like a pin, and probably file the tips if the screw is protruding the other side.

I made a veneer hammer and used HDPE from a cheap cutting board. I know brass is traditionally used to help keep the glue soft from the heat, but nothing sticks to it.
I was just about to suggest chopping board!

Thank you, I'm going to enjoy using it.

The planes are form a collection of cabinetmakers or carriage builders tools which was up for auction ages ago. I think they are for finishing wide fillets on curved work. But it's a guess and the only way to really find out is to make them and see what they do.
They look interesting, let me know if you want some blades made for them
