I found an old wooden bodied plane that a friend once gave to me. He is actually working as a deck hand, so it is very fitting that I use his old plane. He actually gave me a box of some old worn planes because he believed that I would be able to find a use for them instead of he having to throw them all out. There were one more plane that was beyond repair, but the iron was of the same size. So I am able to follow my plan by having an iron ground for a scrub plane and an iron ground for a smoothing plane. (the blades have not been cleaned yet as can be seen on the photo)
The mallet is one that I made as an experiment. I have hardly ever used it, probably because I normaly prefer to use a round mallet. But that would be prone to rolling of the bench when the ship is rolling or pitching, so a square mallet makes sense here.
For some reason, I have numerous wooden marking gauges, so I found a decent JPBO to bring along.
I found 3 chisels: 2 Crown and one E.A. Berg. I sharpened them so they are ready for work.
The combination stone that I mentioned in the first blog entry about this tool chest was actually not needed. I found one on board, so instead I will bring a fine oil stone for polishing instead. I think the combination stone is grit: 250/600 or something along those lines, so a little too rough to give a nice edge.
I decided to see if a dozuki could fit in my imaginary tool box, and by the looks of it, it will be possible.
Sandpaper and sanding block are easy to fit in. The small brush is intended for glue. That way I can bring glue in an old glass jar.
So far the content can be contained in a box that is 30 x 40 x 10 cm (12" x 16" x 4") So that is fairly close to my original idea.
The tools as I imagine they should be in the finished chest.
Originally I thought about bringing rabbet plane, if I had the space, but I am considering to bring a plow plane instead. But I am still a bit uncertain.
So please let me know if you would go with the rabbet plane or a plow plane?
