Flush trim hand plane
MaFe meets BricoFleur
Another project inspired from a LJ buddy, this time Bricofleur the father of jigs.
Serge made a flush trim plane out of a standard block plane iron and now I was in my plane building mood, I had to make me one.
Since I just finished a Krenov style block plane, it was obvious it should have this shape to match up.
1. Flush trim hand plane.
2. Iron fits in slots and clicks on to rare earth magnets.
3. Iron in place.
4. Nice grip.
5. Sucking oil, block plane in background.
6. Iron needs to be dead flat.
A block of hardwood are cut to size.
Now the block has been shaped in Krenovs memory, sole are dead flat.
Making a fixture that fist into the blade and a backing circle that will support it.
I also reversed the cutting bevel, since I wanted the flat side of the iron down, cut of the old and re sharpened a new.
The fixtures are glued on to the sole with white glue.
(This is quite a lot easier than cutting into the sole).
Drilling a pair of holes.
Then shape a little and make the fixtures a wee lower than the blade.
Epoxy sweet epoxy, gluing rare earth magnets into the sole.
Then just a wee sanding, a oil bath and we are ready to go.
Perhaps this can inspire others to – make one of these fine little flush planes…
