    Hi All,

    I recently got a Veritas Combination plane with the Tongue Cutters. Off I went to cut me some tongues. I needed to cut it on the end grain of a 4″ wide. This was quite difficult to do with the combination plane. Even with a sharp blade it was really tough, had to apply oil on the skates about every 10 strokes and take very fine shavings. Whats a better approach? Just sawing it off then cleaning up with the combo plane + tongue cutters? Using a rebate plane instead? Curious on your thoughts. I’ve searched far and wide and was surprised that there wasn’t any video examples of people cutting tongues on end grain (with hand tools).
