    Scott,

    I read what I had written yesterday, and realized that I had given an incorrect impression. What I meant by "significant number mentioned vibration" was that a few had said that vibration...

    Mathew, the work you have done makes the plane look drastically better.

    In my opinion, you got the plane for a steal price, but like many of the rest of us you are transforming it into a great...

    Steven,

    Have been busy, so have not kept up with the build, so read it just now. Very nice project, and I liked the look of the rounded over edges and also the shellac finish.

    Mark,

    Thanks for the input. I will probably end up buying a couple of irons from St. James, because originals are so expensive if in good shape, and a couple of commonly needed sizes for my...

    Mark,

    St. James Bay is still selling reproduction irons on the auction site. I have thought about getting a size or two that I do not have, as those sizes would be very useful if I had them. ...

    Ray,

    Sounds great.

    Do not let the box go by itself. I think that the box makes the rest of the plane and all its parts more valuable than if there was no box, but I could be wrong on that. ...

    Steven,

    Lots of tools stored where you can get at them without digging through a pile in a drawer or carpenters tool box, (my current problem), so it looks mighty handy. I am hoping to build...

    Concerning the causes of rust due to finger prints, etc., as mentioned above, both oil from your hands, and salt from sweat can promote rust.

    Salt itself does not cause the rust. ...

    Hi Dan,

    It really comes down to just what seems best to you. In my case I would keep it, grind a new bevel if that is something you regularly do, sharpen, and you are in business. However, if...
