A few blog posts ago I mentioned Thomas Walker’s wedge design for the moulding plane and that was a slip of tongue as I was writing the first issue of the magazine and I was doing an article on Thomas Walker. Thomas was a clock maker and not a plane maker.
What I meant to say is Thomas Mooney design, so I’ve adding this design in case you prefer to be more period of appropriate.
Please note for Metric users that all my drawings are imperial. My tools are imperial and therefore I match my drawings to the tools I use. I know metric is as simple as counting 1,2,3 but it is what it is. If you really wanted too you could convert all the measurements yourselves. In the machine world I guess it would matter and you may need to redraw everything in metric but in the hand tool we only use measurements as a guide and every other piece is measured against each other if that makes any sense.
