I have been sending tools out on a near daily basis since launching my Blog and videos. The shot above shows an order ready to go to the US, a jointer plane, a high angle smoother, a spokeshave, a scraper shave, a dovetail guide, a chisel hammer and a video. Keep 'em coming!
Before sanding the base smooth on my jack plane I'm levelling the base with a high angle smoother. If I don't do this, biases can be introduced resulting in a slightly skewed mouth, not good!
Here are the two jack planes after shaping on the band saw. I enjoy this part the most as the rough shape is achieved quickly and efficiently.
