I bought a Bedrock 604 with a cracked side that had been welded. I knew it was cracked when I bought it, so I got it pretty cheap.

I restored it and Painted the sides to help hide the weld. I used some prototype knob and tote I had made previously. It had a Sweat heart iron.

So today I took it for a spin. Using my new #604 Bedrock Jack and my #604 Bedrock smoother I prepared a couple pieces of rough sawn, just for test sake. The first is a piece of pine.

Now grab the 604 smoother

Its still my favorite smoother.

It came out nice, rough to finish.

Next do the same with a piece of Ash.

Rough sawn off the bandsaw mill.

Stroke two ways with the Jack.

And smooth.

That looks like a great combo you’ve got going on there Don. I’m loving that Ash.

Don, this plane came out great, You know I was thinking about where you might have gotten your inspiration for this design, could it have been from motorcycles? Seems kind of Harley’esque which would make sense given your profil pic.
