On today’s show, I discuss jointer and planer size, fixing problem with old saw handles, methods for cutting down an old saw, restoring wooden bench planes, and making your own tools.
Just one more use for blue (or in this case green) tape.
Do you really need a plane with a low cutting angle to efficiently plane end grain?
Before committing too much time to a new wooden plane, I start simply by cleaning the plane and honing the iron to make sure it’s worth putting in additional work.
When the lever cap is properly set, the blade should not move during normal planing, but should be able to be adjusted without having to loosen the lever cap.
