This is a Stanley #29 Fore plane that I converted into a chute plane. Since I am on a tight budget, I couldnt afford a LV or LN chute plane, so I decided to make a chute plane from a transitional plane after seeing what poopiekat came up with. Bought the 29 off the bay for less than 20 bucks. When I got it it needed a little work to flatten the sole and square the right side to the sole. I then needed to come up with a way to get the tote to a comfortable position, so I fitted a block to fit over the casting and angled the side to about 30 degrees to attach the tote. Also added a small block by the knob to guide the front of the plane. Sharpened the original stanley blade and put it work. Have used it on a few small projects and so far is doing a great job, if it continues to work as good as it is I may invest in replacing the blade with a heavier Hock blade.
