Tiny Tool Roll (for Plow Plane Irons)

When I first bought my Veritas plow plane a couple years ago, I immediately made a small tool roll to hold the irons.

It was one of my first real sewing projects, so it was a little rough.  It was wearing fine nevertheless, but then Veritas expanded its line of irons for the plow plane, and I got the tongue-and-groove package as well.  I stuffed the extra irons into the tool roll as well as I could, but I soon got tired of that.  Since I had the sewing machine going this week anyway, I decided to make a new tool roll for my plow plane irons.

It holds all eight imperial-size irons, the tonguing iron, plus a couple hex wrenches for adjusting the tool in tongue-and-groove mode.  It’s made of relatively tough canvas, but since I want to store the irons edge-downward this time, I added a second layer of fabric at the bottom.

It rolls up into a fairly compact package and ties neatly with a shoelace. They both fit neatly into the little bag I made from the same material.

If you look carefully at the very bottom layer of the tool chest on the far right, you can see the gray bag with the plow plane in it.

  1. Steve,

    Nice accessory for the plow plane. How do you store the chip deflector?

    • I just toss it in the bottom of the bag, along with the rest of the conversion kit. I just didn’t see any good way to store something that shape in a roll.

      • Steve,

        Are you concerned with the other parts contacting the blade in the plane? How about adding a pocket with a flap? You could sell Kari version 1 and make version 2 for yourself with the pocket 🙂

  2. That’s a great idea! I might have to take up sewing–I need a way to stow my needle files (unless you’re for hire???).

  3. For anyone interested, I notice that Lee Valley now sells a tool roll for all the plow plane irons.
