    Joshua,

    I expect the Hock kits would make excellent knifes. As mentioned they will take some extra care but I've been using Japanese white steel knifes for years and the care between the two, Hock...

    Stew,

    David,

    As I'm sure you know almost any design will work, the Moravian just hits my sweat spot of ease, cost, and stability. Kinda a Goldilocks bench.

    Mike,

    I have not used a wood compass plane but I expect they are not too different from a Travisher. Whatever something has to give a concave bottom.

    A Friend From Work

    A friend from work came by yesterday, he had a, best guess, 1960's Stanley #5 and a few Home Depot Stanley chisels with him. He wanted to learn how to set up the plane and sharpen iron.

    Thanks Stew. It is slow but some progress is made between work and MsBubba's requests.

    What Jim said. I have a near full set of type 9's, missing #1 and #2, mostly because of the low knob and not needing the frog adjuster.

    Chris, you the man. Thanks for the not so good photo.

    The bridle joint while easier than a M/T to make because it is open, is much more difficult than a M/T to make well. Yours look good.

    I agree with others, sandpaper is the safest way but not as crisp an edge as one broken with a cutter. My goto, if it is possible to use a plane, is a shop made small wood stock plane. It can be used...
