I would like to discuss plane wedges and purchasing planes a little bit. I have over the last few years visited most all the antique shops and second hand stores within 200 miles of my house. I get a lot online as well but that is always a gamble. I take great time in selecting the items I purchase. Most of the time the plane is way out of the price range it should be in. If it is not it will generally have a few problems. Wedges and irons will swapped out to make a Frankin plane.
One of my YouTube friends has had some questions about wedge construction. Because of the need to replace a few I have had to take a close look at the way they work. Because I am a visual person and have problems expressing what I need to say in written form, I choose to make videos on the process.
Sorry for any inconsistency in the video. Please ask questions!
