How much rake should a plane till have? I should clarify that I want to build one and I don’t want to have to add ties to hang the planes from, just sit in the till. Does 8° sound about right?

If you mean 8° off vertical then it sounds about right. But why agonize over numbers? Take your longest plane and prop it up, with a edge at top, and see how it sits and looks, and fits . Do the same with a short one and go from there….

Have your say...
