Here I am again, have some time since I’m in Paris visiting my fionce who is French.
Deep stop for Record No. 43 / 50 plane (Stanley)
Perhaps a smiths project… (at least silver smith).
Here are also a blog of how to make wooden fence: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/15855
Ok I admit! It was not clever of me, I did not see that the deep stop was missing on the 43 I bought on E-bay. But the seller was nice and gave me a 4 pound discount on a price that was 13, so I was still happy.
So this little walk thrugh or tutorial is how to make a new! (I’ll add some specifications on size later).
Now time for some marking and remember to pre mark the holes, so the drill will not slip.
I choose to drill all the way thrugh the plate on the single layered, and through the first ‘only’ on the longer two layerd once.
Time to silver solder, it’s not too hard, use some fluss, silver solder and a burner, clean first the items carfully.
Be carefull not to over heat this will melt the brass. You can put small pieces of solder along the object sides, then it’s easier to control.
In the back of the soldering you can see the pieces ready with holes (forgot to picture the drilling).
Here are a link for how to silver solder on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J95soMXxhNc&feature=related
I work mm so you will have to convert if you want to work inches.
Hope it can be usefull to others,
