Wooden fence for a Record no. 43 plane
No rocket sience, but it makes it nicer to use, and less tough on the project.
First I gave it a ‘straight stick’, to help me hold it 90 degree, here a brass rod.
To make the rod visible in all lights and background, I gave it some of this cable plastic that shrimps when you heat it.
(This also helped to make it look a little fancy – I smile).
Then some hartwood, and some cutting and a fence was born.
In this block: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/15855 you can read about how to make a wooden fence for a plane.
Remember to wax it after, this gives a wonderful smooth ride.
I’m really impressed by this little fellow, he cuts, so fast and so smooth, that to bring out the route for small jobs, would be waste.
