    I trust we all get to experience that feeling.

    Nicely said Bob.

    My earlier post decrying frivolous comment prevents me elaborating, but thank you for the research.

    Hi Derek, Alan and Ian. I am happy to present my offering. Are you going to set up the thread as indicated or should I just post it here?

    No, hold off a bit & I'll set up the 'done' thread for you shortly. It will get a bit shambolic if the completed planes are posted in individual threads. I'll set it up for you within the next 24 hours, I promise......

    I saw a plane testing thread which looked as though it might be of interest to those of you still looking for blades or those where the absence of a blade is the only thing preventing you from entering the challenge.

    The thread is by gwertyu:

    Plane iron sharpness testing (woodworkforums.com)

    He links to a detailed Youtube vid, but this is the shortened version.

    Plane Iron Test Results Fast And To The Point - YouTube

    I hope it is of some interest to you, but not enough to relegate me to bottom of the challenge again.



    Regards
    Paul

    Ps: It has been a bit quiet on the challenge front. Did we do the Galipoli thing and down tools for the festive celebrations and play football instead? Also, how long should we indulge in the revelry? It's just that the alcohol supplies are running low and my stamina is waning.

    Yep; having a holiday break. I dislike all forms of football but daughter supplied me with “Cards Against Star Wars” so have been playing that in lieu.

    Still working on mine piecemeal; at this moment I’m discovering how far my woodturning skills have atrophied trying to knock out some handle designs.

    People of the Plane Challenge

    ATTENTION!!!!!!

    So has Bob hinted suggested about in his thread.

    Do we want a time extension.
    “Time extension”
    (June 30 2021)

    Or would you prefer to leave it as is ending on 28 March 2021,

    I have suggested to Bob that we put this to a vote.
    With you the participants only sending Ian W(One of the Judges) your vote for either yes or no in a private message,
    BUT there is one small RULE, you are to only message Ian with.

    “Yes I want a time extension for the plane challenge” or “no to a time extension for the plane challenge”.

    Any moaning, whinny, bitching, will invalid your vote, Ian doesn’t need or want to be involved in personal slang matches.

    Besides I personally know he his very very busy with a large grumpy chainsaw at present.

    If we get 70 percent yes we extend the end date.

    How does that sound. Input please!

    Cheers Matt.
    Ps I’m voting yes for a “time extension”, like anybody of my generation wasting money at the local video arcade.

    A point of order, Matt. Your proposal to make the change does not meet the necessary criteria as previously laid down.

    Executive decision - No extensions will be granted unless approved by ALL members of this forum , their wives, partners and parents.
    There is now according to Doug's calculation 197 days to go.

    Cheers

    I should have thought of that. I think it is because you do the forum on your phone that often your smilies don't show up on my computer, so possibly my computer smilies don't show up on your phone.

    Ok, I'm already finished, so an extension won't affect me. But I say that an extension for the right reasons (as Matt has explained) should certainly be granted and any outside assistance is ok as well.

    I agree with Steve. My own viewpoint is that the essence of the challenge is participation rather than meeting a deadline. Of course,so the challenge had a reasonable time frame, a finish date was set and it was done in the environment of lockdowns and worldwide pandemic. Arguably it is more desireable for participants to complete their project than be rejected for failing to meet the deadline.

    I should point out my own disclaimer in that I am behind in the project. However, if I fail to meet the original deadline I am fine with that. For me it was, and still is ,the participation aspect that is important. Truthfully it never was a race., but I am comfortable with whatever is decided.
