Default Re: Fred's Latest Plane

Fred I'm glad you're enjoying the plane. The bedding plate in this plane is integrated into the body of the plane permanently and this creates in essence a torsion box type configuration. This makes for an incredibly rigid plane body and bedding surfaces that are spot on, and of course there's also the corrosion resistance of the 410 stainless steel. The lever cap in this tool is of the same design that I use in my infill planes, mate that with a .210 thick high carbon iron and you've got a plane where when in use, nothing moves but the shaving (and of course the plane down the board).
