I’m a firm beliver in supporting other LumberJocks when I can and I’ve been in the hunt for a good miter plane for a while. I was impressed with Phil's wooden miter planes and decided to order one. It actually arrived a couple of weeks ago, but with my work schedule I really have not had time to try it out.
It is a wonderful plane. Well made. Phil made the blade as well as the plane. It was well tuned when it arrived. I basically set it on the bench, put the blade in, then the wedge, tapped the wedge in. Tapped it a few times on the nose and was off an running.
The plane has a very fine mouth and takes nice shavings. I’ve used it on my shooting board and it works quite well.
Here is a photo of it on the shooting board
And one with it apart
This is a really wonderful purchase and well worth the investment. It will get many years of use in my shop.
