    Bullnose shoulder rebate plane

    Having spent a while practising double splayed dovetails, I thought that I might as well spend another week making it into a plane.

    I think that I would need another week’s filing to remove some of the dents from peening the dovetails. So this is not the most refined, or best proportioned plane you will have seen on Homemadetools.net.

    Placing the rivet holes during the early practice project caused some problems later.

    At any rate, it looks better now, and although clunky, it works. It’s only slightly more clunky than my Stanley 78.

    You may not be able to tell from the pictures but the infill has a two tone effect, which is a mystery, since the parts were cut from the same small piece of American walnut.

    The nose tilts up to remove the blade for sharpening.

    Or the nose can be removed entirely.
    This is an old Sorby iron from a wormy jackplane. Most of it is iron, so was not difficult to file: until I got to the steel! That was hard! The plane is 40mm wide and the body is 145mm long by 48 mm high. The plane weighs just over 3lbs. (My scales are imperial, sorry)

    There is no adjustment mechanism, that is beyond my ability. I just tap the blade a bit until it cuts right.

    Bullnose planes; you never know how great they are until you need one. One I use most is a tiny import of brass. It has saved the day more than once.

    My arms ache just cling between picture 2 and 3; that was a LOT of filing! It may not be the most beautiful plane but it is no slouch!

    When there is a choice of beauty or functionality I will choose the latter every time. Beauty is merely cosmetics and can be altered at any time functionality is either there or it is not and can become increasingly more difficult to obtain if beauty is selected first.
    I don't see the little plane as being very clunky at all but then again I appreciate having something solid to hold onto
