Here is the POWRKRAFT hand plane all cleaned up and ready to use. I plan on using this plane as a scrub plane. I think it’ll work out just fine.

You may need to turn up your volume, the voice recording is somewhat low.

Thanks for your time.

Looks like you put a great camber on that iron. Ive got a Groz that i would love to convert into a scrub. Any tips on the cambering process?

Roger: Thanks it was fun to do.

chrisstef: I used a method that I saw on an episode of The Woodwright's Shop.

Robbie: Yes I have to admidt that I like it. I might like it a bit too much. It’s not just hand planes, I love taking an old tool that others discard and making it useful again. I find it rewarding.
