    Eyyyyyeuuuw! I wouldn't ever want to rout wood that way, never mind aluminium. If the bit bites it won't even register in his awareness until well after it's cut a chamfer through his finger(s) -...

    Hi Stew. I have a Veritas scrub plane, have used it once or twice so far (so i'm a big time expert) and been amazed at how it peels off sizeable amounts of wood for minimal effort - so the principle...
