    Looks like the Yamaha cranked out a max of 65W at it's peak.
    I doubt one of the little amps will equal this.

    The 'toe' of mine is 9" in front of the blade.

    That's long enough to span the undulations left by my #4 equivalent - which is about 10" long.

    Are you dedicated to Waterstones?

    I've recently begun to use traditional oilstones,
    which are relatively inexpensive, easier to maintain

    The bonus is that they use WD40 - so no...

    The longest plane I can comfortably, and reliably use is an ECE Jointer.

    It's 23" long. That's roughly the same size as a #7, and about half the weight in German Beech.

    I use nothing more than 3 in 1 on mine.

    Every so often, tilt the works upright and clean the mainscrew.
    With a fine brush and a little oil, you can get most everything off.

    +1 on this method.

    If you can can disassemble the works, this is a recoverable failure.
    It's a good looking front, and those are a shame to waste.

    The new "Class D" or Hypex amplifiers are tiny, and potent.

    They're also cheap, and nearly indestructible.

    If they had naked tails like their land bound cousins,
    you would treat them with the appropriate
    contempt reserved for all such vermin.

    They're rats, that climb trees.

    Not electrical tape - shrink tubing.

    No adhesive involved, just a heat activated
    polyolefin that reduces 3-4 diameters with a hot air gun.
