Old Habits Die Hard

The taper on the old iron wasn't at all uniform. The wedge seemed to be a perfect fit with a new one, however. I was already making a few side beads. I told myself that I could just practice on this small one that I'm borrowing from a friend. I couldn't help myself. It just happened.

Faster than the speed of sound...

You could do the same thing with a snipes bill and a #1 hollow. It would take about twice as long.

It's a sweet little plane. 


  1. Matt, that is one very cool plane. Now if you had a 3/8" bead we would be speaking. :o)

  2. great litle plane indeed!! Man life seems good to you!!
