A mitre plane is planing “mitres” (Brit speak for miter), basically cutting end grain. There are serveral variations out of serveral different materials (wood, brass, steel), this is the style I like. My main inspration comes from Bill Carter, an British plane maker (his website is here and is highly recommended).
- Spoke spear - for digging nipples out of a puddle of linseed oil and putting them in a deep(ish) dish rim socket. Serrations really help retain the nipple. No idea of the angle, just stuck a shim under the front of the spinner and ground away.I guess Abom torque isn't always the answer. Interesting - no springs, a belleville washer stack instead.Well, I didn't expect that to work, but nothing took flight. Fly cutting steel on a mag chuck as weld prep. The chuck is so new it doesn't have a model number. Or serial number for that matter.
