    Default Challenge 2020 - 2021 Picko

    Right, I tried to do this earlier but failed miserably, I can only hope that Iím a better plane builder.
    For a long time now I have thought I would like to have a go at plane building and even had materials put aside for a bevel up smoother. I abandoned the idea when I realized that I already had five smoothers and too many other projects. I had fantasized about a dovetail construction but I have decided to start at a more realistic level.
    Iím now 450km from my shed, and will be for another two weeks, so there will be time for planning this project which is something that I donít normally spend enough time on.
    The plan is a bevel up shoulder plane with a 15deg bed and a sort of infill style. Early planning looks like this.

    Picko,
    That looks like a great plane build,
    Not sure how many Bevel up planes are being done?

    Cheers Matt.

    Welcome to the pressure-cooker of plane-making performance.

    Maybe this competition should be in two parts - one for those who know what their doing, and one for me .

    Perhaps I could participate in your group (of two) as coming second doesn't sound so bad as last.

    We can all invent our own category; then everybody wins!

    But seriously, I guess we should just duke it out (or pay big bribes ).

    Thanks all - I think!
    I'm sure there will be plenty of random changes to document Matt. Give me a break on the drawings Paul, the laptop is the only tool that I have at my disposal for another two weeks so you can expect to see plenty more. It looks like my group will be the can draw/never done this before group.
    Now back to the planning of the plane.

    I've stolen a blade adjuster design from the web. I guess if it doesn't work I can just bin it and use a hammer.

    I also drew a shape for what the brass sides might look like???

    That's it for the day. It was too nice outside.

    Is the green line representing what the brass will look like with some patina on it ?.

    Iím impressed with all these computer modeling going on.

    Cheers Matt.

    Yeah Matt the current plan is green is brass. The patina might be starting to form because my design is taking so long, but if I hurry the process I'll have nothing left to do till I get home. What is bound to happen then is re-design and re-design.

    Some of us have no option but to redesign. Even though we provided computer designed drawings, we also just make dumb mistakes (Not owning up to anything)

    Starting design #3 tomorrow

    Cheers Bob

    Yeah but I've already done all this in my head on the sleepless nights while I was still fence sitting.

    So after much error and some trial I have something that represents a lever cap of sorts. This stuff hurts my head.
