Progress has really picked up on these as of late. In fact, as I write this, I have the second coat of finish on each plane, along with each knob. I just need to have the blades heat treated, mill the soles square, and do final adjustments of the mouth. I can’t wait to get my mill completely up and running because lapping the sides of these things is long and painful (literally, both to arm muscles and to the flesh when the sharp edges cut the hands). Each has a couple of aesthetic flaws, but they are all minor, so I’m pretty happy. Anyway, what you really want is the pictures, so here goes:
And here are the lever cap screws. These are two part construction with Indian rosewood tops. No knurling, which may end up being an issue, but we will just have to see. If it needs it, I may cut some in, but I love the clean look.
Well, now there are just a couple other things and we’re off and rockin’!
