A while back I was in need of a router plane, so I made a quick Poor Man’s Router as seen from Paul Selelrs
It worked great for the first project. I was in need of a router for another project I’m working on and went to the poor man’s router from the previous project. Unfortunately, it would no longer hold depth. So I took a page from other hand made and old school planes and added a wedge.
From the original bore hole made to hold the chisel, I squared out and enlarged the hole enough to bed the chisel at approximately 45 degrees, and then continued to make the opposite side larger and increase the angle so a wedge could hold the chisel firmly against the bed.
It worked well. and I’m pleased with the result.
