Wm. R. Robertson Posted April 30, 2014 Share Posted April 30, 2014 When I am fitting parts together I often want to take just a few thousandths of an inch off. The best way to do that would be with a plane. But all the commercially made ones are too big, at least for me. So I have made a bunch over the years. These are similar to a English Miter or Chariot planes. Just like their full sized counterparts some have brass sides and steel bottoms dovetailed together. They have hard steel blades and rosewood infills and are a joy to use. Some of these are set to take about a half thousandth of an inch shaving per pass……. the one on the pencil is my favorite….. I use it all the time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
