I am a bloody beginner, a Galoot, out of necessity and not conviction. I am more comfortable with metal, electrons, computers, pencil and paper and math than with wood, but fortunately I still have a few years to hone my skills.
Recently, we started Galoot-Tools, a company that manufactures and sells innovative woodworking tools for discriminating woodworkers.

Thanks Dennis Mitchel. I heard about this group from Matt’s Basement Workshop so I thought I’ll check it out.

Thanks for making me your Buddy. Are you heat treating your plane blades and making them from raw steel or what.

Karson,

the material is “hua wen gang” (pattern folded steel/iron), so yes, we start with raw iron for the plane body. The cutting edge is made of a hard insert (improved blue steel). We hardened to RC64 and are experimenting with differential hardening to reduce chipout.
This is a difficult process to master and way beyond what I will ever be able to accomplish myself. Making the hua wen gang itself requires multiple heating/cooling/reheating cycles and many things can go wrong. I am working with a highly acclaimed sword maker. My avatar shows a recent sample.

I checked out your web site. Pretty cool. I will add it to my hand-plane reference page. I will have to see if the budget will allow me to purchase one of your plane blades. Also, have you thought making a blade for a Stanley 4 1/2? I would think there would be more premium demand there.

Noticed your Buddhist wanzi symbol from another post. Is that available in the SketchUp warehouse or would you be willing to share it with me? I’m working on some design ideas for an Asian bar and might include something like that in it.
