    MA, the blade is a thick Veritas. 1/8"

    I bought that blade as a replacement for a Stanley 12 1/2. But despite my measuring before, it did not fit. So I have to build a plane around it ;-)

    Sounds like a good enough reason

    I think I can see the finishing line...

    I did put some finish on the plane and while it dries I was thinking about how I am going to sharpen the blade. The blade is very wide and requires a 45 degree bevel. There is probably a better way, but I went to make a jig to hold the blade and be able to run a sharpening plate across the blade rather than the other way around.




    Then I turned to do final fit of the frog.
    It had a bit too much play left and right for my liking. I added small brass pins just above the pivot screws. They are just press fit and then filed down to allow for little acceptable play.

    Here is the entire frog assembly. I think you can see nicely how it meant to work.



    I added another nut between the frog and the spring to allow further pretension of the spring. As this plane does not use 2 nuts like the Stanley 112. It relies on the combination of spring and adjustment nut. During operation the forces will pull the frog tight. There are some videos on YouTube where people have done like that.
    I also wanted to use a closed handle and that was the only I could imagine that's possible.

    Fitted everything and took it for a test drive.



    Worked quite well and leaves a good finish. Here the resulting surface on a piece of chinese elm.



    However, the shavings are quite crumbled. I will need to reshape the front edge of the mouth and possibly the shape of the lever cap to allow better escape for shavings.

    You guys using mechanisms have really pushed the boundaries hear, I for one am seriously impressed.

    Cklett, that plane is looking fantastic.

    Cheers Matt.

    Its looking real good!

    Regarding sharpening the blade; once the hook has worn out and cant be restored I use a Veritas Jointer/Edger first with a smooth file then with a pair of thin 350g and 1000g diamond stones. I just clamp the blade in the vise and run the jointer over it, being careful not to add a slight camber.

    Thanks Chief, I will have a look into that.

    For now I have not turned a hook yet on that blade. And that's because on one of Lie Nielson tutorial videos thay said you do not have to on the thick blades. Just sharpen like any plane blade. Only difference is to use a 45 degree primary bevel with a secondary micro bevel on it. And I also read somewhere here on the forum that people do not turn a hook on the thick blades.

    I will however experiment with that and see what works for me.

    Ok, I think I can call this finished.

    Today I refined the mating of the lever cap and blade and frog. It took a little, but I think I have them now sitting well. There was quite a gap before.

    Then I also refined the front edge of the mouth to help the shavings escape better.

    Also played around with the blade of just sharpening vs turning a hook. I got best results when not turning a hook. Mind it is a thick blade.



    My results from left to right. Pine, Chinese Elm and some reddish hardwood I do not know [emoji6]. I managed to get fluffy shavings with 0.001" thickness plus minus.

    After adding this final touch I think I am ready to hand the T2012 in. [emoji16]

    Excellent Another finisher
    Those shavings look good, it obviously passes the Pine shaving test.

    Cklett,
    I think the Judges are starting to hate me,
    That is excellent really,excellent, and two piles of shavings to boot.

    Its been another pleasure following your build with all the ups an downs.
    I really do feel we only have a lot of winners and no losers.

    Cheers Matt.

    That looks good enough to join mine on the podium!

    Well done; a fantastic bit of design work has gone into this pretty unique offering!
