Why not just soft solder?

silver solder is a lot stronger. lead solder would work. Could also braze it. Reasonable question

Looks cool but with my hand planing techniques, I’d be sure to bang one and really bugger up my plane. Good luck. Have you considered rounding over or otherwise easing the top edges to minimize potential damage to your tools?

That’s what the tygon tubing is for. (post 11) It will be stretched over the copper to grip the wood and protect my plane blades. These are metal and kinda large. Thanks for checking them out.

valid concern, after spending hours sharpening a Hock blade I don’t want to nick it.

Boy Top you are right about debt, self enslavement.
