I have been thinking on building one of these for quite a while – Finally got the hardware and blade needed, the build took about a week – mostly learning how to put a straight square hole in without a hollow chisel mortiser. I have a little trouble turning identical parts…......

Looks great, zone7. How’s about an action shot or two? Router plane is on my must have list.

Very nice. Nothing quite as satisfying as using a good shop made hand tool.

Nice router plane. I need to make one of these, too.

Did you get the hardware as a kit? If so, where did you get it? Looks like a really good blade and adjusting mechanism.

Thanks for posting this.

The blade is from Lee Valley, the rest typical hardware store stuff – 1/2” dia. stop collar replaced the set screw with a thumb screw, knurled nut CA glued to 2 oversizes washers, brass wood inserts. Trick is the spacing between the vertical threaded rod and the blade vertical, too close and you can’t put it together and too far the washer’s won’t catch the blade.

Hello,

I was wondering what the dimensions of this router plane are? W x H x T. Thanks for posting a beautiful plane.

Hello,

Thanks for the response. If I could ask one more question please. How thick is the plane body itself? It looks to be about 1/2” thick. Thanks again.

Bill
