Making A Mitre Plane From A Brass Back Tenon Saw.
I decided to make a plane out of a disgarded Drabble & Sanderson brass back tenon saw that someone gave me, it is a bit thicker than normal.
The plane has a bronze D/T sole and tenon. The bed angle is 19 degrees, it has a rosewood infill and wedge, cupid boe detail on the bridge. Numerous marks (punch marks) on the body.
Sheffield made laminated iron by Ibbotson, 5 5/8" long x 1 3/8" wide.
Marking the body out.
The body cut out ready for bending.
The sole need some flattening.
Beautiful piece of figured rosewood for the wedge.
The plane works like a dream now I have flattened the bottom.
