Router Plane Part The Last
So when we left off with a problem. A big problem. Our iron wouldn't cut. Shannon Rogers from The Renaissance Woodworker left a comment on my last post pretty much confirming what I already assumed. The bottom of the iron should be at a slight angle to the body to ensure that the edge contacts the material to be cut before the heel. My step-dad did some clean up work on the irons using a grinding wheel mounted in the mill and the iron mounted at a slight angle. This seems to have resolved the problem. We decided to add a little decoration since we had the time and the means. This is the fastest I have ever written my name in metal. It may well also be the only time I have written my name in metal.
