Since mike in Katy retired from the custom work I had to have a
source of totes. So I decided to start making totes and knob
replacements. I also will make small normal and large totes for my
planes. I hope to change the jack's and jointers over to d handles too
To get started I need to make patterns of the totes and knobs. I
will make a spreadsheet to keep track of the ones I need.
What I need are samples of the totes and knobs out there. So right
now if you are willing to send me a tote and knob or sets that I need
I will send you a set I made back in easy to get woods like American
woods and my standard woods padouk and purpleheart. Once I see if
this works I can do cocobolo and rosewood and such but I have to mail
order them right now. If you have an old beater plane you don't need
having a body to make sure the totes and knobs fit is even better.
So give me a email if your interested and included the plane number
and brand and the type too if applicable.
