As some of you know, I enjoy occasionally making some infill planes in my shop. I tend to make them in pairs, and these small smoothers are no different. I only need one, so I figured I would offer the other one here up for trade or sale. The vital specs are:

- 6” sole length
- 1 1/2” wide, 5/32” thick O1 iron
- about 1 1/2” tall
- Burmese Blackwood infill
- Blackwood, bronze, and brass lever cap screw
- 47 degree bed angle on the one with sapwood, 55 degree on the other (interested party gets to choose which one)
- Weighs approximately 2 1/2 lbs.

Things I might be interested in for trade are exotic and/or figured lumber, or possibly some other shop made tools like a tenon saw. If you are interested, just make me an offer. Now, the most important part, pictures:

Thanks, Terry. I hope no one thinks that these are out of reach. I will entertain all offers.

Brian,

Super COOL planes!

Question: Why did you use Iron instead of Brass?
Wouldn’t Brass be easier to work with & not rust, etc. etc.?
Did you dovetail the metal sides to the Sole (bottom)?

Joe, brass is about triple the price of tool steel. Not only that, but I used precision ground tool steel which is very accurately dimensioned, already squared, etc. It makes like so much easier. These planes have a couple coats of paste wax which has done a good job. These are actually constructed using peened through rivets.

Thanks Don.

Lat, usually I would be, but I actually was given a reasonable pile of it not too long ago and am set for a little bit.

Ripthorn-
Those are beautiful planes. Everything about them appeals to me. The size, weight, iron width and thickness, bedding angles, design and craftsmanship are all top notch. Well done, Sir. What sort of tenons saw(s) did you have in mind?

Chuck, I have no tenon saws, my hand saw till right now consists of a dovetail saw, a small cross cut saw, and a panel rip saw. So I might be interested in any kind of tenon or carcass saw, rip or crosscut.
