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.
