The best way I worked out of mounting this was to fabricate a mounting that would engage the operating handle of the plane.
I made this again from some scrap walnut. I could have used any other wood but had enough of this on hand to use. As previously stated this gives consistency throughout the project. Other woods that I intended to use were scraps of beech (used as the secondary wood in the drawers).
|The fitted block was cut out with a bandsaw and shaped|
using a combination of oscillating spindle sander
and hand sanding.
|The fitted block was then glued and screwed (from the rear)|
to a straight mounting block of sufficient thickness to
clear the width of the plane fence
A magnet was mounted in a place where it would
engage a flat area on the rear of the plane.
|The hanging bracket was positioned so the plane|
would be close to the carcass side
|The plane hung in position and like the bench|
planes clicks into position when it engages
Hope you are following this so far.
