Meanwhile, I fell over a plane that should have featured in the earlier round of Miniature Madness that engulfed this blog not long since. Except I couldn't find it. Although when I say fell over it, a leprechaun would be hard-pressed to stub his toe on this one.
It's a small round plane with top escapement, made by the patternmaker who was the source of my Mother Lode of tools some years ago. The one with the artistic tool handles. Due in no small part, I believe, to the fact that my eye lit on this little gem and exclaimed over it, he ended up depositing about half his entire hand tool kit into my care.
Constructed in two halves, basic wedge and an iron made from goodness knows what scrap of blade or whathaveyou. Simples. Works a treat too.
