    Good morning! In today's post I detail the process of building a pass-through to accommodate wires for the electronics which will be placed in this cabinet.

    In the words of Homer Simpson, 'it is both the cause of, and solution to all of our problems', though I'm certain he wasn't referring to tapping out.

    I've cracked one blade during tapping out...

    95% of sharpening is making sure that burr is gone, entirely. I would imagine most people who feel they aren't making a sharp edge are simply not doing a good enough job of taking off the burr.

    I concur with Prashun, I would use a microbevel since you're using a grinder to set the bevel.

    I'm using a jack, not a fore plane. David Weaver made the plane based on historical examples.

    I dont measure the radius I just work the bevel until it does what I want it to do. It's...

    It's set to a spot where it's functional against the chip, noted by the chip exiting up and not curling or curling lightly. That setting is further back than it would be for a finish plane or a try...

    This one often planes with the grain when planing panels ;) and so I use a plane with a chip breaker.

    I'm with Kees in that I work with the grain using a jack plane almost as much as I work across...

    I don't think that is a fair assessment, though it may be true for some.

    The back is easy to take out if flat, and I've run into local resellers who give the blade a 'quick sharpening' that...

    They do say it has a chip breaker, so I'm curious about that plane. If you would post up your thoughts when you receive it.

    I use pretty much all media, different blades require it. I like oil stones in a general way, I like them quite a lot, I use them for HC steels, they stay flat (for the most part) with light touchup...

    The chamfer plane makes life easy. You can mark out and plane chamfers to the marks, and for large chamfers that is not a bad plan, but for many small chamfers the chamfer plane is the easiest...

    Thanks Patrick, I very much appreciate the detailed reply. I actually use the cho's now as my go-to for cambered edges, as even though I flatten them regularly they become dished pretty quickly. ...

    Patrick, curious what are your thoughts on the 1k Shapton vs 1k Chosera? I use the 1k cho and enjoy the feeling of the stone but find it dishes quickly.

    My chamfer plane has a chipbreaker, and it is a lifesaver for grain reversals along a chamfer. If you're setting the plane to the size, you usually don't have room to clean up tearout.

    Thank you!



    Well....more like 1/2", since the centerline of the bolt is at least 1/4" from the edge (mine was more) and the centerline of the gooseneck is about 3/4" from the edge.

    That is a...

    Those shoulder bolts drove me nuts, once you fix it from crushing the side grain, you'll pull the threads out of the bench. Every single vintage scandi bench I've come across has that area damaged....
