    I don't like the idea of brass frames. Brass cuts differently than steel. My first project was a Stanley type smooth plane. Got it at a flea market for next to nothing.

    I like your concept here.

    My first was an 1851 brass-frame. One side of the frame cut nicely, the other side was brittle and glassy and had hidden voids. The barrel and cylinder were a joy to cut.

    They make them with steel frames too. Look at the 1858 Remingtons.
