BLADES of the plane, that is! How often do you folks find yourselves changing/sharpening blades?! Just curious. T. (P.S…how about carbides?!).
I sharpen my blades every once in a while with a wetstone and honing oil…never removing much material, just keeping em really nice and sharp (I figure if I’m gonna cut my thumb off, might as well be a clean cut…hurts less) If you ever get that “suede” look after a pass of the planner…need to change or sharpen soon! Good luck and watch those fingers!
