Completed A2 jointing plane
Monday was a “gut-bustin” lapping day - but well worth it. It is still amazing to watch the somewhat rough looking sides transform into perfectly polished sidewalls. De-Smurfing is another highlight... seeing the relationship between the wood and metal for the first time. Here are some pics of the finished jointing plane.
I filed 4 mouths on Tuesday - it was about all I could muster after lapping the plane. The other 3 planes are quite spectacular and I will be posting photos of them in the next few days.
