It has a 3/8” brass cross pin.

So that’s where all the Norris adjusters with the PMV-11 irons went to! LOL!
Been trying to get one up here in the land of Lee Valley with no luck, actually
wish they had a little smaller one as I want to build a block plane version,
I like yours and it gives me an idea how to use some Rosewood I found
hiding!

Yes I too have noticed these blade go quickly. 2 or a3 days and they are gone. They really hold their edge a long time. It is kind of amazing. I have a couple of the larger blades on hand. The 2 1/4 blades are thicker. I am thinking a small, toted jointer is next.

All my Krenov planes have Hock irons and other than a few L.N. my Stanleys and Veritas all have PMV-11.
Love all the woody’s but find after not using them for a while the blade setting is a pain!

Great job on the plane. The video makes it look all too easy. Nice work.

Wonderful plane.
I never get tired of the sound of shavings taken.

You did a beautiful job on this little smoother. It will be a great addition to the shop.
