Here’s a couple of pocket planes:
The one on the left is made from walnut, the right is purpleheart and mahogany.
Meant to carry around in an apron pocket for quick accessibility. They definitely show signs of banging around with all the other detritus in apron pockets…
The irons came from Lee Valley, replacement irons for small planes. The iron in the walnut 7/8” wide and the other is 1” wide.
As long as the irons are kept sharp, they work pretty well for putting quick chamfers on small pieces. However, they are a bit light for anything remotely resembling a full-width shaving. If the iron is dull or the shaving is wide (relatively speaking) they get to chattering, and then it is time to pull out a bigger plane and fix things. That’s too bad, because they are very easy to hold and control. A solid brass plane this size might be awesome!
