Hello fellows,at this time I would like to share an idea I had to help an use of a low angle plane for shooting boards.

At this review below you can see the side diferences at LN and LV smoothing planes.One has a depression for finger and other not.

I do have a LV smoothing plane but always want to buy a LN #164 because it is a copy of one of most dificult Stanley plane to find.So soon I’ll purchase one. I decided to make myself “finger depression” while waiting the plane to arrive.

The hot dog sold by LN is to long for fit at #164.I used a Empire stair gauge glued(epoxy) at wooden piece.

The idea is simple ,easy to do and cheap.I used a holesaw without the drill bit and make a small round piece of hardwood.

See the pictures below:

I made a pine guide to cut the wooden “meat-ball”

I used the small router to round the edges

The orange clamp helps to keep the wood safe in place.

It is confort to use

Thanks for attention

Looks pretty cool. I don’t think I would have come up with that for a solution.
