Had this one on the cards for awhile now.
About time to 'get it on' as my old friend Stuart used to say.
I cannot find exact information on all of this.
Same as my Mitre Plane, educated guess work.
I have therefore skewed the blade by 10 degrees.
Notice the nail holes from the previous owner.
It is quite common in Japan to 'tack on' fences to your plane.
I wish I had an Osaehiki Nokogiri nearby..
At last my chance to use the Saw John and I made.
This is what it is all about...
Cutting tough Japanese Oak like butter.
The handle has so much more texture than rattan.
Feels better to me, more grip.
