    Jim, basically, there is no room for the shavings to escape, and they are becoming trapped between the chipbreaker and the escapement.

    Don't.

    You cannot jamb a wedge against a round pin. The wedge will eventually develop a groove, and you will then struggle to tighten it sufficiently.

    The Krenov plane is famous for laminated...

    Thomas, when a book-matched panel is joined, the grain of each panel runs in the opposing direction to each other. Consequently, when planing the intersection of the two pieces, you are always going...

    It has been demonstrated that more dust is created by hand sanding than by the average (not necessarily good) power sander into a vacuum cleaner. The choice is yours.

    Thanks Bob. :)
