For those that are interested the dimensions for my chisel plane are below.

Although I mention that the second angle is 51 degrees in the video, it is actually 55 degrees according to my CAD.

    You mentioned you had a little dificulty setting the depth of the chisel. If you put a couple pieces of paper under either end and let the chisel come to lest on the surface, then put in your wedge, you might find this helps control your depth.

      Rod – I had a lot of trouble controlling the depth of the chisel on my first design that used a screw. On the new design that uses a wedge, it is much easier to control.

      Your tip for setting the depth sounds like a clever idea. I will definitely try this in the shop. Thank you!

    should be rest – not lest – that’s what I get with elephant feet on the key board.
