  1. Lingerie Chest started and your strategy wanted

    Some of you may recall the lingerie chest I began to plan near the end of last year. I had to put the build on hold until recently, and in the last couple of weeks I have managed to get back to it,...

    Hi Ian

    Of course you know that there is a skew angle jig for the Veritas Mk II honing guide?

    Robert, I commented on this earlier. Perhaps I need to clarify methods. Others can comment and agree/disagree/modify - it's useful information for technique building.

    A shoulder plane sets up with a fine mouth and capable of fine shavings. It may also be used with a wide mouth for thick shavings. This is a plane to be used on tenon shoulders, where very fine...

    Hi Graham

    Don't take the diagrams too literally - they are just rough drawings for illustration. Perhaps someone might redo them using SketchUp. That would be more accurate.

    I think I have figured it out. Steve, I'm sorry to say that I must disagree with your reasoning (more likely I do not understand your reasoning) - that this is more about geometry than calculus .....

    Warren, I did not say that he hardly ever sharpens his chisels. I wrote that he has not re-ground them since the first grind.

    Why do you persist in misinterpreting what I write?

    Sorry Steve, but we are not on the same path this time. I think it may be terminology (some refer to a secondary as a micro, and vice versa - I do not).

    Hi Graham

    A secondary bevel, by definition, is a bevel that is ground or honed higher than the primary bevel. A micro bevel is simply a small bevel, whether secondary or coplanar.

    It strikes me that for most this whole area is a non-issue.

    For most, hollow grinding a blade removes waste from the centre of the hollow. The subsequent honing removes the same amount of steel as...

    Correct.

    One more item: if the lever cap moves when you place your fingers below it, then it is too loose. The lever cap needs to be tight enough not to move, but loose enough to adjust the blade...

    Hi Peter

    Realise that the LN and the LV bevel up jacks are two different planes. The LN is the size of a #5, and the LV is more of a #5 1/2 (a little less, but the analogy applies). The LN uses a...

    Hi Noah

    While the paper does not compress, the teeth ends are sharp and still penetrate it.

    Essentially, the paper acts as a depth stop when compressing the teeth that penetrate the paper....

    Stewie, that is an excellent tip. I've used Mike's method for years now, but blue tape is easier to apply and keep in place. Is it the same thickness as photocopy paper?
