    20 degrees, or 70 degrees .... depends on which side of the blade you are measuring :)

    It depends on how long it was last planed, and how it is resting. Many freshly planed boards, especially this thin, may cup a little. This is especially so if the air around them does not circulate...

    Hi Kevin

    There are a number of videos on Youtube demonstrating a method, where you touch the back of the tooth with a bench grinder.

    Edwin, I quite like FWW. As far as I recall, no one has criticised it. It is PW that has lost the plot and the target in this thread.

    Very doable, if you want to go down this path, James. I don't, but a debate I had with Larry Williams (Old Street Planes) a dozen years ago lead to the development of a method to camber BU planes.

    The Woodmaster CT can also be sharpened. I sharpen my own bandsaw blades, and probably sharpened the past CT about 5 times over its lifespan.

    Totally agree, Bob. This edition could have been published by Wood magazine. I very much doubt, at this stage, that I shall renew my subscription.

    Thanks Jason.

    The planing was from the sides inward only ... leaving no chance of spelching.

    I have just ordered another 1" Woodmaster CT. It is available at my local Felder agent right now, and at a decent price (about $100-150 less than a Resaw King). The CT is 1.3tpi, with the RK is...

    Resaw blade

    My 1" Lenox Woodmaster CT has finally bitten the dust (literally, in three pieces). So, before I get another, there is the opportunity to instead get a Laguna Resaw King. These two carbide resaw...

    Hi David

    I have a couple of gennous. For Japanese bench chisels, when dovetailing - that is, gentle work - my preferred size is a 225gm head.

    Thanks William.

    The roundness is aimed at introducing the feminine side. Also the softening by curves. The internal dividers are deliberately made half the thickness of the case so as to reduced...

    Mike, on a bevel up plane, the thickness and fit of a blade are unrelated. The mouth is adjustable, and can accomodate for thickness. I have a LN blade made specifically for the vintage #62, and it...
