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.
