Pull Scrub Plane

Nothing much here

The bench slab has crowned and the best

option for me is the scrub plane

My coarsest is my wee Spiers plane and there

aint much of a curve on it

So one blade a bit of Oak offcut and two slices

of Padauk

I keep my eye open in the hope of a Stanley 40

They were only made in the USA as far as I know ??

Some on eBay but some want $50 shipping for a

$12 plane. One day. :)

Second Plane is my Spiers that I normally use as a

Scrub Plane. My normal use of a Scrub Plane is not

truly for the correct use

I use them for the effect of the blade

across the grai, well at about 30 off of

square. I then sand and call it quilted

really shows the Chato…. (big word) of

the wood

The third is just for Bertha my Old Norris

Lovely plane mate.

If you want a no 40 send me a pm and maybe I can get you one over here and send it to you. It shouldn’t cost $50 in postage.

Thanks Mads

The Norris was stolen many years ago

I found it dumped in the hedge

months later.

Hence the blotches.

The blade is 0.155” or 3.92mm

the Spiers blade is .172” or 4.46mm

Nice plane Jamie. I’ve given up on finding a good Stanley #40. Crappy ones go for silly money in the UK.

I have a thing for the USA Stanley though.

find me one on the other side of the pond and

ship here. wonderful

very well done. I got lucky on my #40. I bid on ebay and it looked worse than it really was.

I’ve got a narrow wooden horn plane missing the horn I picked up for cheap. That will become my wooden scrub.
