    This is a print done at a 45% of full size as that is about as large as i could fit on the small 3D printer

    Below you can see the dovetails that will get hardwood infill to create hard wearing touch points for the sole.

    I had some fun creating the one below as at 45% sizing that is 6mm tapering to 5mm wide and 3.5mm high. i chopped a 6mm wide section of a little bit hardwood floorboard, then decked it in the mill to about 5 high, hand sanded the bevels inserted into the slot then decked it to height back in the mill

    It's tempting to make a thicker version at the width and actually make a blade to fit as it would seem to be a great little size to do bevels.... i'd even leave the wings on as they provide some nice hand hold locations.
    Phil,
    I canít help noticing a kind of headless cartoonish character,
    Or is it just my sick sense of reality showing through.

    But I think you should win a door prize for the quickest Plane Build.

    Cheers Matt.

    Definitely a woman with long gown and flowing sleeves. Her head is bent backwards while she washes her hair. Can't see head because photographer took the shot from too low an angle.

    Well after work i thought i would try and mill a blade up for the little model

    Had some 50x5 that i cut a section out and went to practice on the mill

    I actually got all the tapers on and got to what seems really close. milled a 25 deg bevel, run it over some 600 wet/dry to get it vague sharp... actually it's sharper than all my kitchen knives atm It is not hardened btw.

    Hammered it in like you do for a normal Kanna, set the skew by feel and grabbed a bit of 42x19.

    a couple of bevel passes and i was confident to try it on the 19mm side and got this.

    Actual real curvy bits coming out

    I had some hardwood sections so thought, what happens if i try and bevel the edges.
    Sheesh that worked as well.... the big curly bit is pine but the small stuff still in the mouth is from the hardwood

    Feeling pretty chuffed right at the moment

    Phil,

    Thanks Matt, i was having some trouble believing it worked as well....

    Note to judges: this is firmly in the Proof of Concept part of the build and not a formal entry... but if there are bonus points for creativity and getting into the spirit of the puns for the last week then i won't say no


    Paul: mmmm i have an account with a custom t-shirt place


    A couple more photo's of the blade, it was a mix of use the DRO and angle gauges and just eyeball it it will be close measuring.

    The good camera doesn't hide the tooling marks that's for sure.

    Sitting on the cutting mat it's easy to see the top to bottom taper, its a bit harder to pick out the 3deg taper on the body above the blade bevel. Might redo this for some practice.

    Phil,
    Is that 38 mm wide 01 Tool steel?

    Cheers Matt.

    Nah I wish, it was just a section cut out of basic 40x5 flat bar from bunnings that I had lying around. Being low carbon I wonít be able to harden it either but itís good for practice on machining the blade shape.
    Ďthe bit of bar I have is cupped bad enough that by the time I flatten both sides itís under 4mm thick. At least now I think Iíve got the milling order sorted with respect to holding it in the vice

    cheers
    Phil

    Definately better than this one

    Import Tool Madness: PLASTIC hand plane. ($3.80; free shipping) - YouTube

    You should get that design protected asap!

    I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't show up on one of these cheap shopping sites......

    Well it might have been done as a bit of humor to fit in with all the plane puns and a small proof of concept but I spent quite a bit of time today ripping some of my floor boards to make some French cleats and then started sanding the edges to break sharp edges and thought ďwhat am I doing this the hard wayĒ and reached for this little plane. Even with the unhardened blade it work fine to give a small bevel that only then took a couple of swipes with some 240 to finish

    My confidence is now high I can pull off a full size version

    Finally a small bit of momentum again, son dropped off a leaf spring that will yield a few blades.
    PB010835.jpg

    There is at least a 100mm section each side of the centre hole that appears relatively flat as a starting point

    PB010836.jpg

    I didn't grab a photo of the measurement not counting the radius but it was close to 70mm so that is near spot on design goals.

    It is 13mm thick though so i either design for the thickness or take some time on the mill to get down to 10... my first thought is a nice heavy blade will be good.

    Phil

    I enlarged the pix to get a good look at your leaf spring. It looks good and with your milling machine you will be able to get an excellent surface after annealing and flattening. It will be interested to see how the thick blade goes as I have the same thing.

    We should almost have a sub category for planes originating from car Junk.
    Good to see some action Phil !
    13 mm thick plane iron wow,
    Well at least you wonít need to use a sharping guide to sharpen that bevel, if you use a full flat bevel.

    Cheers Matt.
