Topic tags/keywords: wooden shoulder plane plane

Hi,
I have just made a wooden shoulder plane( 1 inch) based on the plans from the woodcraft magazine stanley 92 blade and maple wedge. . I am fairly happy setting up and adjusting metal hand planes, (stanley and record) but i have never used a wooden hand plane before and dont really know where to start. Any advice on how to set up and adjust the blade height etc will be much appreciated.

cheers jonathan

Not sure but it may be the same as tapping the front or back with a non-marring hammer. I’d love to see a pic of it though.

Thanks for the advice, you are absolutely right about tapping the front and back. It just that it is very much easier to say than do. But that’s what practice is all about.
The plane is now finished and I have posted in the projects

cheers
Jonathan
