I had some time in the shop yesterday and decided to experiment with this type of construction.

The steel is epoxied and pinned into a shallow groove in the plane body.

Dimensions are approx. 7 3/4” long x 2 1/2” tall and slightly more than 1/2” thick with a 45deg. bed angle.

The iron I made out of an old spade bit.

The iron is too short, so it is a pain to adjust, I will have to make another one.

Nice work, looks great & is very useful. I see what you mean about the short iron, and difficulty in adjusting. Can you weld an extension on the tang? Have fun using it.

That’s a very nice looking shoulder plane.
