    Default Succumbing to pressure from Ian

    Well not exactly pressure to build, but to finally pull my finger out and finish.

    I made all the brass bits pretty much straight after the original plane build for the comp. Another 1 inch and a 3/4 inch. As I gave away the first 1 inch made to the father in law.

    So after lots of procrastinating on what to use for the infills I finally settled on what I think is a bit of figured blackwood for the 3/4 inch, which the tiny piece has been sitting around for nearly 6 year I think. Most of the figure is where you cant see on the wedge.IMG_2702.jpg

    For the 1 inch I ended up just using a small offcut of Rosewood.

    More lessons learnt.
    I get a bit over excited with the soldering and use way too much which results in a lot of tiresome filling to clean up.
    Easy to go from not enough mouth opening to too much very quickly.
    And once again for the 3/4 inch the blade doesn't sit perfectly square, need to tap it a little side ways but can take an even shaving.
    As for the 1 inch, i don't know what I done wrong here but the blade sits perfectly square and cuts lovely. Still scratching my head about that one.

    They could both use polishing up a bit more but they work and thats good enough for me.

    cheers

    Shane,
    I would say Ian had nothing to do with those two gorgeous planes.
    There fantastic, an Ye tool building tends to be a bit stressful sometimes.
    But thatís just part of the learning curve.

    Cheers Matt.
    Hope we see them on the Sunday night Jabber [emoji6]

    Not a 1//2inch but I do have a 1 1/4 blade, still need to source the brass for the infill for that one.


    Oh, and I told a lie, its not rosewood, but is blackwood.

    Nicely done Shane.

    I am not sure what constitutes a "set," but if the HNT Gordon's products are anything to go by, you need a 1/2" and a 1 1/4" to make the set of four.
