Hi Bruce. I made the pins 3/32nd, and that is a bit long. In areas where there were no problems, I hit them with a vixen to knock them down before peining. Through a mis-set of a marking gauge, the tails were 1/8th proud, and I had to knock them down before peining. I went larger than a 16th because there were a few gaps to close laterally and I wanted some cushion.

The sides are1/8th thick and the bottom is 3/16th. Any thicker, and the plane would be too heavy. It's 8 1/2 pounds or so.

O1 for the iron, and a little overhard as long as it holds up. Good 01 makes a superb iron if heat treated with care. I was able to use a coffee can forge and bernzomatic ts4000 torch with mapp gas to heat this iron probably a bit hotter than it should have been.

For the taper on the iron, I used a combination of the idler on a cheap 4x36 sander, and a vixen with anything from a hacksaw to a large washer under the middle to bow it. The vixen was a huge time saver over files for the rough work given all of the metal surface.
