  1. Thanks Ron, I really enjoyed making this plane, I’m dying to fit some tenons now.

    I’ll probably get to the other kit in the next couple of weeks, I’ll let you know how that one goes too. I’m thinking of also using it as a template to try and make a longer jointing plane using the same sized blade.


    1. I recommend tracing off the parts to use as templates for the next plane. Adapting the basic parts to other lengths and blades is easy. The mouth/ramp/cross-pin relationship is the only critical part. Good luck! And thanks for your post.
