|It's a nice feeling when a saw you sharpened and tuned performs this well. Mind you, this was not a six foot long cut through two inch rock maple, but that's still pretty darned good for a novice.|
My next surprise for the evening involved my crusty old Craftsman plane. I had the irons for my go-to smoothers pulled out because they need to be sharpened. This plane has already proved that it works well, but this blew me away when I went to clean up those freshly ripped pieces.
|That's as good as my wooden smoothers.|
|Did I mention crusty? That old iron takes a very keen edge. Old plane, thou art now dubbed "Sir Crusty Wood Muncher."|
