Although I usually work with power tools, sometimes hand tools can be very useful. That is why I made this router plane, here in Holland called a horletoet, oudewijven tand or grondschaaf. I don’t know if horletoet is a corruption of an english word. I have never met anyone who can tell me the origin of horletoet. Could it be related to horror tooth? The literal translation of oudewijven tand is old wives tooth. The original name grondschaaf means bottom plane.
I made it out of Beech. It is treated with BLO. The knive is made out of an allen key. It is made after an idea of Stumpy Nubs from which you can find more at https://stumpynubs.com/

Thanks for watching.

Many times I have wished for one of those to clean up a grove.

Great idea Dutchy using the allen key… now that you’ve got the base, there are many allen key sizes.

Does the allen key have a groove in it to permit micro-adjustment?

Nice job Dutchy. My father always referred these type of planes as “old woman’s tooth’ so it seems the common description has been around for many years.

Hey PJ... some of us old blokes have one tooth only too (not two).

Nicely done, and the Allen wrench should keep an edge. That is a project on my list, I could use one for dado cuts, and cleaning them out.

I should make one of these… not that I need it as I have the Veritas, but to use up all my allen keys from friends that have bought IKEA and begged for help.

It has a grove for adjustment, but not for micro adjustment. It is still hand made Alex.
