Crimson0087 Posted October 21, 2022 Report Share Posted October 21, 2022 So I sharpened the plane...it's pretty sharp I think...I used a jig that holds the angle and progressed through 8,000 whet stone...then I raised the angle just barely to get a "micro bevel" saw that tip on YouTube. I'm getting much better shavings in the clamp. I built the shooting board and after I built it I made a few passes against the plywood to cut the plywood a little just leaving the 1/4 inch that the plane doesn't take bc the blade doesn't go to the edge...now I'm trying to use the shooting board on some scrap and on the violin back and I can't seem to get it to cut it ...am I not pressing hard enough? Blade still dull? Not sure what it is....it does take a little force when in the clamp to get the long shavings but not as much as before...any ideas/tips? Anyone on here live near Sharpsburg ga lol. Also. I noticed my plane blades are slightly curved as in when I rise it out of plane it starts cutting at the center and not at the sides...should I leave it and continue to sharpen it like this or should I sharpen it till it's perfectly flat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
