Saw prices for shoulder planes and their cost was just too expensive, so decided to make a shoulder plane on the Lee Valley – Veritas design, due to it being of modular construction and therefore easier to make.
Materials used as per other planes I’ve made in the past, with welding and piening to join the sides and with bolts and nuts grinded and filed into shape, nothing special there.Grub screws were used to hold the metal knobs/parts in place, no fancy lathe turned knobs and threads… it’s only just a tool after all.
It is a tool one seldom uses though, unless for a specific task at hand and then you can make way with chisels or even files…
