Hello to all, this is the first kerfing plane that I made, it is inspired on theTom Fidgen´s one but with some diffrences. It is made with some beech that I had around and with a piece of an old saw. The saw is filled at 7 ppi. It works very well and accurate. I did not like the screws that hold the fence but untill I find others (brass ones or silmilar) they will live with the plane. I hope you like it and thanks for watching and commenting.

Lovely plane. Looks like it says “use me!”
What kind of saw did you use?
Thanks for sharing

Hi, thanks. The saw was a bellota that i did not use very much because its steel is not too good and it was very thick for a small panel saw. But, for only making a kerf I think it will work very well. I have been trying with different sets to see wich one makes the better kerf for my hand saws.

Great job. This is a great looking tool. Tom Fidgen makes wonderful furniture and has very good videos.

You could use long threaded rods and bury them in turned knobs to make toolless adjustment possible. I always end up overtightening brass screws and twisting them off. Nice work.
