Custom Block Plane22
There’s nothing like using a tool you build
yourself. This block plane features solid
double dovetail construction, an easy-to-adjust
iron, and a custom hardwood infill.
Page 26: Figure 3
In preparing the online extras for the infill block plane, we discovered some errors and decided to make adjustments to the sizing of the Lever Cap “C”. The distance from the front (lower) edge of the lever cap to the shoulder is now 1 instead of 7/8. The distance from the shoulder to the top of the lever cap is now 1/2 instead of 5/8. The concave radius on the lever cap is now 5/8 instead of 9/16.
For the steel-sided plane, we purchased
a 3"x17" billet of Damascus
steel from Alabama Damascus
Steel. The thickness should be
.14"-.175" thick. On the website,
you can select the specifi c pattern
you like for your plane.
