Chisel Plane

This plane was made from Rob's (oldtools) kit that included rough castings,
blade blank, the hardware and a turned knob.  I finished the ductile iron
castings with files, sandpaper and a belt sander.  The O1 tool steel blade
was shaped on a grinder, heat treated and then the edge was sharpened (I
machined the slot using an end mill in my drill press).  The knob received my
first try at a sprayed lacquer finish.
