    It is quite likely that planing softwood requires a slightly higher clearance angle than hardwood, however around 10 degrees should cover both situations well enough.

    Hi Brian

    I did consider this early on but recognised that one would then be forced to lean over the top.

    It occurred to me once again when I was drawing up the side elevation. What changes...

    Hi Mark

    Yes, I was referring to cupping. I was thinking of a solid top, and concerned in this respect.



    Laminating a curved panel about 20" wide is a little daunting. I am not sure that it...

    An alternative

    As mentioned above, I mainly grind on a Tormek. It is only used for plane blades and bench chisels, and I sharpen lathe chisels on a 8" half-speed grinder. The latter is set up with the Tormek...

    The Tormek 2000 is a grinder first and foremost. I know that it is touted as a sharpening centre, and it will work that way, but it is not really a good enough sharpening centre. It is,...

    Frank, the blades are 1/8" thick as I recall. Definitely thinner than the 3/16" BU planes.

    Keep in mind that many will use them with the chip breaker.

    Hi Jerry

    As Dave wrote, used to plane a l-o-n-g board.

    Not altogether necessary (just plane down high spots first), but it can make the job easier.
