The brass handles were turned on my lathe and have M12 thread which screws into the oak. The thread for the depth adjustment is M8 and was drilled and tapped into the oak. I have made cutters in the past using an Allen key, but this one was bought from Lee Valley (Veritas) They are not expensive and easy to sharpen because the cutter can be unscrewed from the cutter bar and can be attached to a honing jig.
A few questions..
Did you cut 'brass bits' yourself?
How did you cut the thread in the oak for the threaded 'depth' bar?
Did you make the 'cutter and cutter bar' yourself or purloin it from and old one.
Sincerely and in good faith
