I’ve made a few infill again. This is my latest.

Small Infill Smoother
◾Infill is Morada with a hand rubbed Bush oil Finish
◾Bedded at 50 degrees
◾1 3/4” single 3/8” iron
◾Approx 7” long
◾1/2” steel sole
◾Bedded at 50 degrees

This is a design I’ve had in mind for a while.

My plan is to sell this, make another, and so one. We’ll see how it goes.

Really a nice one Don.
Think it is my favorite for now from your hand.
Nice simple lines and a fine knob for the blade.
Really really fine.
Best thoughts,

Nice one Don. How are you doing the slots on your thumb screws? I just put in an order for a straight knurler to knurl my lever cap screws. Also, how is your cross pin held in? Tapered and peened? I should try an overstuffed. I have enough materials on hand to do another like this…Hmm…

Here is a pictorial for the knurling. I plan to put some explanation with it but haven’t got there yet, http://www.timetestedtools.com/making-the-2015-toted-smoother---part-5.html

And the next one I’m going to try cutting with the band saw instead of the dremel and see how it comes out.

I put the cross pin in my wood lathe and made a tenon, then peened it.

Don, that is a beautiful thing to behold. I think that your plan is a wonderful thing and I hope that you will be successful and that you will learn with every one that you make so that you can improve the next one. I pray that you will prosper in your endeavor. I have seen your wonderful collection of planes and I know that you have gained much in the way of skill and knowledge of planes by working on them, using them, and making them. God speed.
