I was very lucky to recieve a Hock hand plane kit for my birthday this year and this is the result.

It was very easy to build the plane and sharpen the blade from the instructions and kit provided, it took me about an hour in total I think.

The body is jarrah with beech (I think) for the cross pin and frog. I liked the contrast between the ash dowels and the jarrah so I didn’t cut those areas off when I shaped the body post glue up.

The finish is BLO and some shellack.

I had one wooden plane before, a large Marples jointer which I found hard to set up, however of all my planes I find this the easiest to adjust and the most pleasing to use. It also cuts beautifully, those Hock blades are worth the money!

The other planes in the picture are L to R – Marples 22 inch Jointer, Rolson No.7, Record No.5 1/2, Stanley No.4 and a Record 9 1/2.

Very nice. Ron Hock is a class act.
What’s the bed angle?

Wolfdaddy its 45 Deg, works fine on most woods, even managed some Ash without tear out. Didn’t like purple heart though!
