    Brad

    That sounds like some heavy metal.

    O I see one of my closest rivals,
    Is posting again.well well,


    Brad, be careful of the weight issue,Iím in the finishing stages of my second plane build, itís about 165 mm long 45 mm wide.
    Itís a little on the heavy side, not hugely heavy but noticeable.
    6 mm steel sole,3 mm brass sides,6 mm single Iron.
    Small Gidgee stuffings.

    Cheers Matt.
    Saying all that, my competition plane will probably be quite the heavy lifter.

    Cheers Matt.

    Paul, I prefer to listen to the Blues, but have been known to turn the volume up on some heavy metal at times.

    I am going for the heavy hitter with my plane Matt. Iím sure thereíll be some that say it reminds them of Mike Tyson .

    I still canít log on with my iMac, so I had to email theses pics to myself so I could upload them on the iPad. Bit of a hassle and I donít know how they will display until I post.

    This is the wide angle shot of my bits.
    Pretty sure this was part of another Thumbsucker group buy . Not sure how handy it will be.

    And the Thumbsucker MKI plane blades. Canít remember the reason behind that wide one, a MEGA Smoother maybe ? They are pretty hefty blades.

    Looks like you are really into the swing of the challenge. I am looking forward to something that will emulate your your skills as a macro photographer (extreme close up photography, not suggest that Brad is vertically challenged)

    Cheers Bob. Hopefully I will end up with something to show before the end of the challenge

    OK, I just reread the rules, and I donít see anywhere that it says you canít change tack with your design. So I am forging ahead with a new plan, since I found my narrowest blade is 2 inches.
    I am still making a smallish smoother, but it will be a bit longer than I originally thought, and it will have a rear handle instead of the bun.
    Other changes include, stainless steel bottom and sides, and the sides will be curved.
    So far, I am still using Cooktown Ironwood for the woodwork, but that could change if something else takes my eye while rummaging for the Ironwood.
    I am also drawing a plan using pencil and paper, no cad in the Ironwood shed, I was originally going to wing it and make it up as I went, but as I complicate things further, I think a drawing to follow might pay off.

    On a sour note, I still canít log on to the forum with my iMac.

    Iím with you on the design changes Brad,Iíve gone through a few my self,
    Do as many or has few has you want.
    The judges just want to see a finished plane and a pine shaving.
    Pine shavings will possibly appear in the market place for sale towards the end of the competition

    With respect to paper and Pencil we ainít paying for licensing stuff!!!.

    Some of our comrades are now having second thoughts about all this paper pencil stuff.

    Have you tried gently tapping the IMac ,
    Or is that Pc fix now obsolete??

    Cheers Matt.

    Yep, they can keep their stinking license, they wonít be getting any brass razoos out of me .
    I have tried the small hammer kept at the house on the Mac, but will be bringing back a bigger one when I come back from the shed later.

    Here is a look at my design, there will be a few changes here and there to improve aesthetics etc. Pretty sure at this stage I will go with 60* blade angle.
    The handle has been just roughly added in, that will definitely change shape.
    I canít seem to make my pics appear any bigger on the iPad, but if you click on them they should open up to a bigger size. If I ever get to log back in with the iMac, I will change them.

    The pics open up quite large for me.
