I’m making a variation of the handplane below, unsure how to create the angled cavity for the wedges slides down into…my blade is exactly the same width of the plane body so I need the hole to be centre and stay centred as it goes down…I guess I could make it a big bigger and give wiggle room for the blade?
Whats the best technique to create the angled “hole” for the wedge? Drill press? Hand drill and augur bit with a sliding bevel? 3-4 Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans by Caleb James 3_25_13.pdf (178.5 KB)
