Rounding Plane

Needed a 1 1/4 inch rod for a vice screw, so made a rounding plane.

Usual rambling picture blog here

Seemed to go wrong more than right while I was making it, but turned out OK.
Hand tool build only, feel free to comment/criticise as always.

We make the tools as the need arises. A good-looking plane, and a nice write up.

Nice tool you made, 👍 👍 
Nicely done!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

You don't hold back!
 Make a tool to make a tool part used in a tool to be mounted on a tool.
That is a mouth full of tool items.

That looks pretty high tech, nice job it looks difficult to make but it worked well.

Cheers splint, it's possible that I'm just easily sidetracked, I could have just planed it down to close enough for the tap - but who doesn't want a new tool? :)

Thanks awsum, Low tech not high tech ;)

It's not the tech, as long as it works... The trial and error raises the degree of difficulty. 
After all, the F1 car probably started with a nut!

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
