The old Stanley and Record Router planes are very difficult to get hold of in New Zealand so I designed and modelled this one. The model was created in other software and then imported into Aspire.
The boys at our school make their projects with hand tools only and this Router plane comes in very handy for finishing off their housing joints.

Dear Sir

Lovely work. Nice to see you showing the boys (and girls?) these traditional skills.

It's called a 'Grannies Tooth' here in the UK. The Stanley No 71 has a depth stop which the lads found particularly usefull when cutting out the treads and riser housings in their stair strings.

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

I also will say great job.

l often am at my traditional bench using hand planes or had cutting dovetails while my CNC is busy working away. I've received a fair amount of ribbing from friends who think that I am not a real woodworker anymore because of my CNC. I think that woodworking skills make you a much better CNCer.

My hand saws and my planes are the most important tools in my shop. Having said that, I can't live without my CNC anymore!

Thanks Martin
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.
