That is one fancy plane JayT. I have a 7 and an 8 but never really used them for shooting due to their size. Maybe I should give them a go too. My 7 is setup to smooth and the 8 eats wood like no tomorrow so I’ll play with the 7 I suppose. OR….Jay should just make another one of those and send it my way!!

I always knew the 7 or 8 would be better at shooting but it’s easier to use something smaller and keep the work piece in place so I have always just made sure my irons were sharp. It’s worked well so far. Was hoping for a more mobile.

Definitely wouldn’t be opposed to trying my hand at making what you made there Jay, would LOVE one of those. The shooting board made to match the plane is ideal too….sigh.
