Another set of infills. This time some Shooting Planes.
Infill is ebonized walnut with bark Danish oil.
Sides and sole are precision ground steel.
Irons (still to be hardened) are O-1 1/4” steel.
Pins are brass.
Lever cap is brass.
Lever cap knob is from bridge city.
Bedded at about 38 degrees
Irons at 30 degrees.
Sorry guys. I had some technical difficulties, so no blog. Gorilla glass in my phone was no match for the concrete floor.
But some answers to some questions:
—It weights 5 1/2lbs without the iron.
—I got the metal at Mcmaster Carr.
—The pins are brass, Bottom into the sole are through pins (Not sure I’ll do that again) and the top are brass screws set and filed.
—I did not use epoxy on the through pins.
—I did use JB Weld in setting the screws.
—The sides are neither dovetailed or screwed, they are pinned.
—Shampeon is doing my heat treating. I’m going to give Dave The next set (whatever they are)
Thanks for looking.
