Steve,

I was too lazy to get the deck of feeler gauges out, take them apart etc etc, although that would make the setback exact. The method I used has two virtues: it gets you in the right ballpark fast, and anyone can do it who has a ordinary Post-It note (4 thou), or a sheet of ruled notebook paper (3-3.5 thou), or a sheet of 20-lb bond business paper (4.5 thou).

I find one only needs two benchmarks, one around 4 or 5 and the other around 8 or 10, so that when a forum participant references a particular setback that they measured, you can immediately call to mind what that looks like on your plane.

Konrad makes custom infills—will make anything one is ready to pay for. Will size the tote to your hand, make to your bedding angle, set the mouth gap where you want it, with or without adjuster, double iron/single iron, etc. Files a really beautiful layback of the top side of mouth and other details. He has been making a long recovery from a serious shoulder injury, working on his sports therapy, and would surely like to hear from his old acquaintances.

I have a question about your own plane-making....what do you use to shape the totes? I was looking at Lee Valley’s Japanese files last night....
