    Flattening the sole of a cast steel hand plane?

    Thread Starter: Lasse Hilbrandt

    On YT there are a lot of videos that show how to flatten the sole on hand planes. It seems fairly easy, but I wonder if there are anything that can go wrong if the tecnique is not right? Can one accidently be "rounding" the sole instead because of more gringding at the ends than in the middle of...

Then I started looking at the different cutter bits ($65ea) and the tenon...

    handheld router with big bit

    Thread Starter: andrew whicker

    Hi all, If I get a custom made router bit for this chamfer and I only take small passes at a time (like 1/16") will handling this router bit be an issue? This is a chamfer on a table top that I don't have room to do with my router table. I am will to change the dimensions some. I think it...
