    Victor - Will you be using the planes to mostly work over timber that has been machine joined and planed before hand planing? Or do you anticipate working on rough timber from the get go? If you are...

    IMO, given that you don't need to sharpen garden tools and #10 is not an issue Erich, than I believe that the CBN wheel in the 180# - 220# range would be the preferred wheel due to the factors you...
