Great Customer Plane

Kevin sent me these pictures of a really nice plane he made using the shell of a old Stanley 110 and a blade and adjuster kit from Veritas.

He really pushed the boat out on the infills with snake wood and a box wood wedge.

It clearly works very well, no doubt a lot better than the original.

A nice way to use the snake wood maximising the small section and keeping the most figured part on show.

Kevin achieved a really tight mouth which is something the original non adjustable plane certainly wouldn't have had. I get the feeling this won't be the last he makes and I hope it has inspired some others to have a go as well.

  1. That is cool way to bring new life to a simple old tool.
