    Jointer plane

    I use this plane for preparing wood for edge gluing. Its modeled after old coopers planes but in metal and much smaller, with a flat handle for clamping it in place.

    With my old Stanley fence attached it works pretty much like a powered jointer and is easier to set up than one though harder to use. It works great for narrow and short pieces.

    The frog, blade and cap are from an extra #6 plane and the body is a 20 piece of 3 channel with plates screwed on like whats usually cast in for mounting the frog and totes.

    I can't quite picture myself using this. Are you left handed?

    I only use it clamped in place like you see in the first picture. I push the work itself from right to left across the base and over the blade, holding it snug against the fence and base, just like on a powered stationary jointer.

    The second picture was to show the fence - I leave the handle on that because I sometimes use it with regular planes, and then I use it on the opposite side, as shown in the drawing here:

    A kind of normal use with it, making 24 wide planks from small short scraps.
