    Plane angle?

    Planning to make a scraper plane using wood for the body. I'm thinking just a little bit of angle, but what angle should the blade be? I believe that most any hardwood will work: I have plenty of pecan and cherry. Are there some websites that have simple plans? Thanks!

    Check the Popular Woodworking Magazine web site (http://www.popularwoodworking.com) and do a search for scraper plane plan. I've seen the plan in the long ago past, well maybe 2 years back.

    For a scraper, you'd want a slight back angle - probably somewhere around 5.

    I'm guessing what you want is to sort of emulate the Stanley #85. Patrick Leach's Pages give a pretty good description to use as a starting point.

    You can get a blade here for $5 with the correct angle already on it. Use the dimensions of the Stanley #80 and you are away. Good luck.
    cheers
