Hand plane fence DIY
Making your own fence for any metal handplane.

I decided to take up the challenge of making a DIY fence for my hand planes, this time I made one that will fit my no. 3 and no 4 Stanley and Record planes.

The pictures come from the Hand plane fence DIY (for my no 3 and 4) Blog .

- and if you wonder what a cooking picture are doing in the middle of this, then you will have to read the blog…

I will update the fence with two adjustment screws to set the angel perfect (up'n down).
And I think I'll buy some bigger rare earth magnets also just to secure a really tight hold for next one I make, even it seems to be enough.

I hope this can be to some inspiration, and perhaps even make some straight edges,

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Simply awesome…. and now I am hungry but have to go read the blog to figure out why.

Are you finding the fence deflects a little bit…is that the reason for needed bigger magnets?

Another amazing MaFE jig that will make my hard earned skills redundant! Just joking, clever idea Mads. Do you find it works accurate enough?

Great minds think alike brother, I just posted something on planes as well!

Swirt and Div, I made it just before leaving for Paris, so I did not have the time to really try it.
It seemed to be holding fine with the rare earth, but they were not so big. (If you have a old harddisk, there are some strong bastards inside, but they have a strange form).
I did not check if it was perfect in angel, but I was thinking this can be adusted with a little crew in the button and top.
Also I used only a 3 mm wood for the profile, it must be at least 4, but if bigger than 4 it will interfere with the tote.
I'm sure it's more accurate than my shaking hands… But with you Div, I'm not sure ;-)_o
I'll get back with a update on the use, when I'm back.

If some one did not understand then you use the tote to push, and the fence knob to hold it into the wood, in that way I have a good control.
Jubiii my tools are arriving!
Eric and Jani, go for it!

Mafe, You are the jig guy! What a really cool idea. Kind of a mobile shooting board….

You sir, are a bloody genius. Keep blowing me away with all of your projects and I'll keep hanging on the edge of my seat for the next one.

Dennis, I have done the trick, it's not difficult, have a set hanging on my wall.
Here are a guy telling how to get it out the drive. This video show how you get them of the metal, this is the hardest part.
KTMM, takes one to see one…
Rick, thank you a lot.
Ron, you will be busy doing some.

Dude, you are absolutely on fire with all these great jig projects…that is North American slang for you are doing very well.
Take a peek at this video I referenced in a blog and let me know what you think. The guys scared me off of using my drill press as a router and I would think the drill press/ lathe has similar issues.

Another great idea. I made one of these awhile back, but it's not nearly as nice as yours.
