    Yeah, I wouldn’t go painting it. I think alternating coats of Nugget boot polish and the secret sauce wax should build up to a nice patinated finish, that will look better than aged brass. I think this will really impress the judges

    First it was finely detailed drawings some of which have been ingeniously contrived on a computer using some technology I can only guess at. Then there was unbridled bribery and corruption on a scale unseen since the last election and the "sports rorts' and now we are producing full scale mock ups that would have the besmirched car industries of the world drooling into their sump pans.

    I ask you what chance does a plain maker stand? What happened to improvisation and cobbling up a functional but perfectly ugly device complete with warts from all the mistakes. Any how, got to go now and put a few more threads on my screws.

    Some drawing curves,cutting ,nailing, (probably a dirty word hear).

    So ,after a massive brain sleeping session last night!
    The central hump area has been moved forward by approximately 22.98256 mm, at first it was moved just a bees ,you know what over 10 mm.
    This was deemed to be playing it to safe,
    So ,throwing all caution to the wind we moved the centre hump forward in total a whopping 22.98256 mm

    Giving more room for the tote,and more room around the Cap Iron pivot axel.

    All positive thoughts welcomed.

    Cheers Matt

    Matt

    Looking good (the plane) for a bit of ply that is. Continuing Brad's analogy perhaps your plane should be called "The body."

    Well, I’ve fined tuned my design in, created my last template,(famous last words) this template I will use to make a 18 mm pine template using my Trim Router to use as a filling guide to file the brass square with.
    I also spent approximately 47 seconds creating a high tech curve thingy out of a orange juice container,that I used to check the template, and will also use to check the curves are correct on the brass.

    And last job for today , was to give the brass sheet a quick rub over with some 600 wet and dry paper.
    To check that were I intend to cut my sides from was defect free, and know huge scratches that I would need to spend a life time sanding out down the road a bit.

    Cheers Matt.


    Ps : Anyone have advice on how to approach a 90 year old male, an tell him to clean is workshop up?.

    If my kids would ask me that when I am 90 I would just say the mess is my legacy to them. So that they think of me when they have to clear it up when I am gone [emoji12][emoji16]
