It all got started for me when I decided to try to use gramps old plane that I inherited. My brother took the other one, and left me with the defiance and a wrapped pack of blades. (I've since been buying better and learning tuning still)
I was over at my brothers and I asked about the plane (trying to figure out what number it was), and it was a Bailey (didn't date it or even take it out for drinks ).
So when I got home I opened the pack and found one Sweetheart blade and two Rule and lever blades. (two different size blades).
Are Sweetheart BLADES better, or just the planes in general? And if it is better, should I date it my brother plane and put it with it if appropriate?
Thanks and sorry for the long story.
