    The plane looks nice Dave, good luck with it!

    There are a lot of Disston saws available on eBay, problem is you don’t know exactly how straight of a blade you are getting till you get it.  I blelieve the D-8’s and D-12’s are good saws and you can usually find good deals if you look long enough.  The #12 London Spring is their best saw, but you will be competing with the collectors, they get pricey.  Here is a tip that may help find a bargain, in your search field, type in “Diston saw”, sometimes folks listing the items will make a typo and you can take advantage of that.

    Thats a great trick Stephen, I will definitely use that.

    Spent today making a new handle and front knob for the plane.  Got a chunk of rosewood from the local wood store.  Both the rear handle and knob are now soaking up some linseed oil.   After a lot of chopping and shaping I now discovered that my home depot rasp and files are not so good.   Will have to look for a decent set of rasps and files for shaping.
