Trying to find a good way to secure a strap to a hand plane. Would these be strong enough?

I used just the nylon webbing on mine passed throught 2 holes drilled in the deck and then Knotted on the underside in a countersunk section.

Hope that makes a little sense, if not I could always post a picture when I get home tonight.

Im trying to avoid doing that and to make it so its adjustable for size, there isnt much width either so counter sinking underneath isnt going to work. Also trying to find something like a d ring but with at least two fixing points and a flat bit rather than a D.

I reckon that will hold fine. I usually use a modified fin saver

How come? Is it to stop the strap from fraying? If so then just burn the end of the strap with a lighter for a second or two and the strap will start to melt. Then you can just lightly shape the melted bit so it looks tidier. :-)
If only there was a simpler way to get difficult things done.

By the way, that looks a lovely handplane. Whoever is going to receive one of those is one lucky so and so. :wink: :-D :-D 8)

No its to form a loop around that fixing, didnt host the image properly. Right click to view image and then zoom.

Should be done in a few days so let me know how it goes :wink:
