Made this plane adjustment hammer from some walnut and a 7/8” round piece of brass I picked up on ebay. I found brass surprisingly easy to work! Put it on my lathe and used a file and sandpaper for shaping/polishing.

The only trouble I had was that the hole for the handle didn’t end up perfectly centered. I just shaved a bit off of one side of the handle and it basically looks right.

Great tool I think. I always use a piece a scrape wood but yours is a better solution.

Thanks! I was pleased with it. My bandsaw needs a new guide bearing, so I’ve only been able to do simple projects until the replacement part arrives. It’s been fun tinkering in the meantime. Once my guide get here, I’ll be resawing a bunch of 1/4” cherry panels for a frame and panel bookcase I have in the works!
