    Going plane crazy

    I dunno whats got into me but i since i got hooked on Derek from Perths site and the links to all the plane makers.

    Here is one that i think has some good ideas i dont know if they quiet his original idea but i quiet like the idea of a tote at the back end of a wooden coffin type plane sure beats the old fashioned coffin bottom type back end.

    This is one i would like to have a go at making. Will allow much more controlled chamfering.

    I picked up a nice slab of european beech just for the job to try out a few of these planes.

    The bug to make tools has got me tight.

    I dont know about furniture but certainly love the idea of a little metal work mixed with woodwork.

    Check this guy out using copper to make a wooden plane with dovetailed together copper side and sole.

    Oh i am itching to try something like this. I gotta get some copper or brass. Will have a look when i am out this week around here.


    I am thinking that the metal from old dewalt planner blades can be recycled into something like a moulding plane blade what you guys think?
    cheers

    Rob,
    That plane is often referred to as a "Razee" type plane. A Stanley #35 transitional is a good example of this type, and the #35 is one of my most favorite planes.

    That Euro beech ought to make a very good plane body. It'll be quite a challenge to work with, too.

    Rob,

    I guess I spent too much time around airplanes. I was half way thru your post before my brain shifted gears and you made sense.

    I guess I must have had a procedure. Anyway I don't remember anything about it.

    Enjoy,
    Jim

    Well Jim, I was on the same plane (air that is) you were on. I for the life of me couldn't figure out where a DeWalt planer blade fit on a scale airplane! I had Brent's post in the back of my head evidently.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Heck it is all just a plain as the nose on your face if your brain wasn't hydroplaning. I could hear the slosh all the way from here.
