Thought of the Day - What a Grind
I tuned my first hand plane this weekend. I have a basic Stanley block plane I picked up a while ago and have recently learned that I need to tune it to get it to work well.
The hardest part by far was the initial flatenning of the sole. I didn't have enough course abrasive paper so I really worked at it. The initial shot shows the factory finish about half flattened.
And a LONG time later.
And the reason we do it.
