Topic tags/keywords: ulmia wooden plane ulmia wooden plane 48 ulmia wooden plane 48 question

Last time I entered something on this group I talked about planes just drifting in. Another one just floated down my way. Thanks to the net, I found it was not a Stanley, but actualy made in Germany. The plane in the picture is not exactly like mine BUT has a lot of same pieces
Wood , 3 items, marked 48 blade, chip breaker and a wooden shim.

Nicely sharpened and a bevel

Spent the last 3 hours trying to figure out just how it should go.
Blade marked with word on top- seems logical
Chip breaker with bolt to fasten and adjust blade, seems sensible since there is space undeneath for the bolt head
to sit in.

The wooden shim seems to hold it all together, but ends up with the sharp end of the blade very close to the wood

Now for the nitty gritty Usually the chip breaker is fastened 1/64 behind the blade, works fine on a Stanley but doesn’t allow enough room for the chips to come through in this plane.
So did the previous owner sharpen the blade backwards?
The blade angle is 32- measured OK.

Is that correct? Do I have every part in the right order?

Thanks for ant info.The ones in EBAY sell for a fair amount so I would like to have everything in order before listing it for sale

Your words seem to line up… but I’ve got no idea what you are talking about… maybe a picture or two might help us dumb arses know what you are thinking.

sounds like it was supplied with a very narrow mouth. You can file it wider if desired.

Usually the wood wedge tapers down and has a cutout to allow for the chips. Maybe the bat ears busted off and its going too far in? Need pics

Have your say...
