Making and Using Tools - Planes, Scrapers, and Shaves


 
  Building an English Steel Miter Plane – Part II by Adrian Britt 9 of 13  

In both cases, I angle the files at about 30-degrees off of perpendicular to create an angled effect.

Now, I gently smooth the “V” into the center of the bow.

I have worked the left side of the wedge with the ¼” chainsaw file to blend
in the two shapes. I will do the right side next and finish with 400-grit sand-paper.

Both sides of the Cupid’s bow are now finished.

For the iron, I use a piece of 01 Tool Steel at 1-1/2” x 1/8” x 8”.

Using Layout blue, I scribe the lines for the bevel and the rear taper.
