Workshop Tip: Make your individual plane-adjustment hammer

Article Image

For those who use wood planes you’ll want a hammer to regulate them. Right here’s the best way to make one with a hardwood finish for setting the wedge and a brass finish for adjusting the iron—all for underneath $20. You’ll want a black-iron T-fitting for 1/2-in. pipe, and a 1/2-in. square-head brass plug. To make the wood finish of the pinnacle I turned a sq. piece of hardwood right down to 1-1/4 in. dia. to match the skin diameter of the T-fitting. Then I turned 3⁄4 in. of that finish right down to 13/16 in., which let me screw it into the top of the T—the place it threaded itself because it went in—after which sawed it off to size. I did the identical factor to create the hardwood deal with, shaping the deal with a little bit to go well with my hand.
