Count me in…but change my vote to a hovercraft!

The more I think about the time frame, I like q 4 months…plenty of time for a build. Opening mallets at Christmas last year was very cool, but look at the extra 25 package load we placed on poor USPS. :) just kidding…

Since I have a minor in math, and don’t get to use it much on the goat farm, I’ll volunteer to divide 12 months into equally spaced time frames if needed. LOL

I really fear 6 months is too much time between swaps…too easy to get excited now and sign up…but forget later.

Seems weird that this is a blog instead of a forum… I figured we’d just keep using the “shop made tool swap” thread, since it’s generic.

Either way, I guess I’m in…

Don’t have the excuse of my shop being tore apart this time. Count me in.

Jason….quit wussing out. Think of it as a jig for a chisel;-)

Way to call me out Red…that may be the tactic I need to actually participate this time!

I assume regardless of the type of plane being built, the iron should be sourced first and everything built around its dimensions?

Alright guys and gals, you are going to need iron for those planes. Don asked if maybe I could do something for the build, my reply was most definately.

The irons I sell are high carbon O1 tool steel, 1/4” thick and 3.5” long. They are precision heat treated to Rc60-62. Available widths are 1 1/2” and 2”. Thick iron without a chipbreaker, so no need to relieve the ramp to accommodate a screw head.

If you order a “half-ashed” blade from my site and put “plane swap” in the comments of your order, I will send the blade with the primary bevel already ground and a sandblasted finish. All you would then need do is a quick final honing.

Be Good
Rhett

I’m in. I need a good target date for getting my CNC up and cutting real pieces :). I’ll have to see what I can work up for this.

Edit: Are we limiting this to wood bodied planes, or is anything fair game?

Mauricio, you are right, it should have been a forum topic. I spaced out. To late now.

for those thinking its above your expertise, its not. Jump in, you’ll get all the help you need. Lots of pro’ s around more than willing to help.
