...trouble with the phone editor on the last one.

I did also copy that design, probably from the brese kit at the time, without getting the kit. Raney Nelson advised me that my first pins or dovetails (I did them as square pins with a secondary angle filed into them) would not be very good and I'd be advised to make a small first plane.

Very impractical little plane for work of any significant size, though, especially if you camber it and reduce the cutting width further. Never could understand people building jointer planes and such from krenov kits with a 1 1/2" iron.
