I finally got around to finding out why the nice little vintage coffin smoother I've had for a while would never behave. Now that I have a working wooden plane, I decided I needed something to adjust the iron with. I had a nice piece of pecan sitting around that was pretty much dry, so I turned this little guy.

It is a little on the light side, but works well. I might add some weight by drilling and adding lead shot with epoxy, or I might just turn another with a larger head. Traditionally plane adjusting hammers are brass. Thought I would use what I had.

If it works, why not...

Life's short, turn fast!
