    It’s coming together very nicely CK.
    I am following along on this build taking notes, as my next plane will be a scrub plane, similar to the Stavos Gakos model that I linked to earlier . If my coffin smoother turns pear shaped, this one may take over as my comp plane.

    Isn't your coffin smoother sort of meant to be pear shaped [emoji6]

    I am watching your build too and have some questions, but I will ask that in the tips and techniques thread.

    Maybe I should have said, if it turns out like a smashed pear .
    I am mainly worried about the peinability of the metals I am using, if it doesnít work out, I might resort to the 14 lb hammer.

    Hopefully, I will get a chance to get down to the shed this afternoon or in the morning and have a bit of a go at it.

    Absolutely Brad

    Don't be tempted to force it: Just go for the bigger hammer .

    Otherwise this happens:

    Cklett - I like your mini-bench. We'll need a few more artful shots of that

    Looks like you better get the welder out to fix that Paul.
    Ill be using my Grandads old hammer to start with, itís been a good hammer, had to replace the head once and the handle 3 times now, but itís always been a good hammer that one

    Brad

    That mallet will actually be the subject of a thread at some point in the future, but your thread has been "treated" to a sneek and exclusive preview .

    I thought I had found the perfect way to prevent a mallet head coming loose and I have (actually somebody beat me to the idea and I copied it), but it creates a weakness. The head did not come loose: It just broke off!

    Regards

    How about this as an artful shot.

    Mini Workbench - Suggestions for joinery please


    Today, I just got to start on the mouth. I am glad I don't have to pay too much attention to keep it tight. For a scrub plane it is meant to be big anyway. Although I also don't want it too big. Currently i am aiming towards 6 to 7 mm.

    Thatís a very impressive artise shot CK.
    Looks like you cleaned the both benches too.
    I really love the mini bench, I could seriously use one of those.

    Good to see some progress on the Scrub plane.

    Cheers Matt.

    Yep, I am really happy that I built that bench.

    Pretty good when filing the mouth. I picked up this way to hold the workpiece from Young Je. He just clamps the sole and a 45 degree block into a drill press vice. Then clamped onto the mini bench it's a really comfortable height for me. Not much bending down.

    Hi CK. So much to catch up on. Things are looking great, both the plane and the workshop, no creative mess here! Since "making" my own scrub plane I can't believe I got by without one. They are perfect for dimensioning by hand, just so good at removing bulk quickly. Young Je is very clever and I am still trying to workout where he comes from. He never speaks, his tools look sort of American and his name could place him in a few parts of the world. One video saw him take a cheap block plane, tune it and produce beautiful wispy shavings. But no mini workbench - he's missing out (as am I for that matter)

    I think I am ready for bashing it all together.

    I am happy with the mouth.



    Remember it is a scrub plane. So the mouth might still be a bit on the smaller side.

    I fitted a block to it and think it is ok to go for peening.




    But I am not sure where to start. Is the a recommended sequence? First the steel and then the brass? Starting on the sides and then the sole? Do you work your way from front to back or random?

    Not sure. Any advise would be welcome.

    Looking good CK,

    For whatís it worth, on my challenge plane I did the sides first(The Brass) then the steel (soul).

    For know particular reason,

    Cheers Matt.

    Ok half way through peening.

    I researched a bit and everyone I saw started om the sole and then yhe sides. Bill Carter said this way the sides will be pulled onto the sole plate.

    However that did not work for me. I tried to clamp and screw the plane parts onto the wood block as good as possible, but it kept moving on me and the sides moved away from the sole. So I decided to do the side first and get it nice and tight as good as I could.



    On this side I think I had not enough steel sticking out. Other side is more. And then I think I also overdid it hen putting a little bevel on the corners of the brass tails. So I had to move the steel quite a bit and some corners probably not enough to get all the way into the corner. I was using a rounded punch to help directing the blows better into the corner.



    Still quite a few mishits and my arm hurts [emoji6]
