Look at the bottom. You can get just the blade

I was thinking of using those but they are a bit too short for a wooden body that I will be using and a wedge.

Unfortunately yes. I am looking for one shaped more like a traditional molding plane body. so around 6” or more for hammer adjustment.

I don’t suppose these would work either: http://www.leevalley.com/en/Wood/page.aspx?p=74142&cat=1,230,41182,43698,74147

Or LN sells blanks for making molding planes: https://www.lie-nielsen.com/nodes/4142/tapered-molding-plane-iron-blanks, if you got a grooving iron and then a 3/4 inch molding iron blank and then ground out the middle to match the grooving iron.

Those blanks are my fall back. And what I will probably end up using

James

Why not just buy a clapped out set of wooden T&G planes—- since you’re only after the irons, you can buy the rattiest looking pair available. I often see them going for cheap on that auction site.

May sure that the blades fit together (tongue into groove)—ask for a photo—before pulling the trigger.

Have your say...
