    I guess I'll ask what your goal is? Are you doing this for structural reasons to draw the joint together or for aesthetic reasons because you like the look of a pegged joint?

    I typically leave the tenon about 1/8" proud of the surface. After the wedged are set and the glue is dry I saw them off flush and sand/plane as appropriate to finish them off. If you cut your wedge...

    I think about 1/16" (0.062", 1.5mm). These are a series of guitars that Gibson made a few years back called the "Zoot Suit" series. They look worse in person than in the photos.

    I used to have a #46 (I think Jim has it now). I only had one cutter. It worked well and having a complete tool like the OP has would be nice. They make a great plow plane.

    I did all the chasing I needed to. I started with the Diamond plate (300/1000) and the 16K Shapton. I added the 6K Shapton as an intermediate step. The Shaptons cut so well I don't need any others.
