I’m still trying to clear up in my mind how this thing works. That little nib must be what keeps the plane from eventually eating up the whole shooting board. Right?

Thanks

Yes and the nib is made by the plane. It is a thousandth or two of an inch proud of the body of the shooting board…..

Just make the edge of your shooting board square and the plane will handle the rest….

Also you can eliminate the middle line in your chuting board.

That’s right Jim.
The blade on planes does not go to the edge of the sole so that allows the plane to glide along in a straight line across the wood.
The little gap you see on my pictures represents the maximum depth that I set the plane blade when setting up the board.
Had I set it less the gap would be less.

O.K.?

The workpiece rests against the fence, and against the sole of the plane. It only protrudes about the distance of the “nib.”

I snapped a few photos…

Looking down the board. You can see where the plane blade has cut into the board a tiny bit
Looking down the board

I’m trying to show how tight a mouth this plane has. The blade protrudes very little and it takes a fine shaving.

Here is one with the plane on the board.

This board/plane combination makes perfect 90 degree miters…

The shooting board is a board made by Michael Connor of Australia and the Miter Plane was made by our own Phillip Edwards.
