I love it, Herb. Where did you get the blade?

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Beautiful work Herb. The blade I ordered for my try at making one came just after I headed off to work. I hope the Lee Valley one works as well as the Woodcraft one.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

They stock 3 blades, the 01,A2,and the PM-V11 Blade, all good blades, maybe I will oder one of them too to see what the difference is. Glad you mentioned that.

Further review the Veritas are made for a low angle shoulder plane.
not sure they would work in my plane.

There is a cheap one for $7.90 Can for their Hong Kong made planes. I’ll let you know what I think of it once I see it.

Nice job Herb...Chuck I don't think it matters if the blade is good steel doesn't matter what it costs. You are using it for a shoulder plane and your not trying to mill stock with the blade. You could even make a blade out of an old table or circular saw blade.

Looks really nice Herb the purple heart is hard enough it should last a long time.

I finally remembered to take a picture of the blade I got from Lee Valley http://www.leevalley.com/US/Wood/pag...182,46334&ap=1 It came very sharp but a fairly coarse stone was used to grind the back so I polished it up a bit. It seems fairly hard and the bottom of the edges are blue so I'm assuming it was heat treated. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the cutting edge polished up first so I didn't bother doing more once I saw that. The back is what is pictured. I picked up some Japanese planes while I was away working. $20 for all three. The one with the LV blade on it is supposed to be a shoulder plane. The blade is on a beveled face. The middle is unusual in that the wedge goes through a separate hole in the body than the blade does. Seems to work very well that way the limited amount that I tried it. The third has a finger groove machined into it. Since the Japanese planes are meant to be pulled instead of pushed, the finger groove is very helpful in gripping it.
