RWW 165 From Boat Anchor Junk to Fore Plane
I hear from a lot of people who tell me they are saving money to buy a premium Scrub or Fore plane. I’m very quick to tell them that it is a waste of money to buy a modern, precisely manufactured plane to be used as a tool that required very light tolerances to do its job well. Of course I own both a Veritas Scrub and Fore plane so I’m being a bit hypocritical. We all make mistakes right? So I put my money where my mouth is and in about an hour’s work converted a beat up and rusty Jack plane into a Fore plane that will match my Veritas stroke for stroke. Its really just a simple matter of cleaning it up and cambering the blade.
