    Bought a bigger rasp, much easier to cope now.

    How about this machine I think that this may be able to help you build the plane.

    Maybe, a 1/2" rasp would be perfect for the 3/8"dowels. The 3/8"rasp works well on the 1/4" dowels. The spindle sander would need a 1/2" round drum. I will look. Thx.

  6. What ya do is go get a cheap, Harbor Freight kinda cheap, hole saw set and some sticky back sand paper. Then build a small adjustable angle seat for the dowels. Now ya got multiple sizes of circular sanders for the drill press with an angle seat and can go to town.

    for what its worth, I took a round file , broke it so it would not be tapered , put it in the drill press, put the dowel in a table vice and once I had the angle just went at it .

    That's a good idea. A cross slide vice?
