    Give me a break Matt, I told the software that it was brass. You can't trust 'em! There isn't even bulloak listed in the wood renders so I had to use some random thing. This is gold. Veerrry bright-unlike me.

    OK, planning is complete - until the build begins and I start re-designing on the run! (as I do).
    Is it wrong to be happy that your holiday is over so you can get back to your shed?

    So there it is. I'm not even sure that I can do some of the things that I've drawn but it will be fun trying.

    Looks really good on the plan Picko. Will be following your build with interest.

    Thanks Matt, without a shed, it's all I have been able to do. I do have a bit of an edge there, as detailing has been my day job for the last 15 years. Unfortunately my metalwork skills are only in the fairly early stages of development, so it's a good thing I had the forced lengthy planning stage. It will be good to get into the manual stuff next week.

    That drawing is nice. I hope you can make it all work.

    Wel I'm back to my shed.
    It turns out my memory isn't as bad as I thought it was because in the box of plane bits was the blade that I could picture while I was designing the plane.

    I should be able to get what I need out of this, after a bit of gentle massage.

    I don't think I could bring myself to cut into an old iron like that. I have 2 old wooden planes that have blades like that, I don't use them but they work. I suppose if I found a total unsalvageable one I may think different about the blades and I've been thinking about buying some just for what you're doing. I would still have a hard time but I'm sure I'd get over it. As you were. Cut that sucker!

    I managed to sneak into the shed after yard duties and got a bit done. I roughed out the blade (Banjo made me do it). I did show respect to Mr Ward and kept his logo relatively intact (for now) .

    I also dragged out the old cast iron storm water grate, dispatched a couple of red back spiders and attacked it with the 230mm angle grinder which yielded the two sole pieces.

    Tonight I got all the cast iron shaping finished. Very happy about that because I find it horrid dusty stuff.
    Because I don't have a mill, I did the thickness (20mm) in the four jaw on the lathe, which involved some inventive work holding.
    I did the other faces on the disc sander. I had to use the amber liquid to wash the dust down.

    Iím sure that would have been a little nerve racking, machine the cast iron in the lathe like that.
    It can be a pain trying to hold odd shape stuff in a four jaw chuck.

    Looks good though good results.

    Cheers Matt.
