    These are planes that need very sharp blades - no half measures. This is usually the difference between success and failure.

    David, I do not hear that there is much difference between the Glass and the Pro stones in cutting ability. However, for much the same outlay the Glass offer 5mm of abrasive mounted to 5mm of float...

    My understanding is that the glass stones are a different composition to the Pro stones. David can probably tell you more. You essentially get half a stone for your money. They are not a good...

    Hi Dave

    Possibly a plastic base. Not sure. When I think Scotchbrite I think a coarse brown-red wheel used for paint removal. The deburring wheels are not at all like that. There are a wide range...

    Hi Richard

    Actually, I do have the Shapton diamond plate - only I paid about $75 for mine, which is why I jumped on it several years ago. It is only used for flattening waterstones, and it should...

    Hi John

    I use the LN spokeshaves but have many LV blades (A2, PM-Vll). As far as I am aware, LN does not offer O1 steel any longer.

    There are two factors I would look at in what is effectively...

    Hi Tom

    I sharpen my bandsaw blades by grinding the back of the teeth flat.

    However, I sharpen files (not tried rasps yet) by soaking them in citric acid.
