I am hoping someone may have a answer to something that drives me nuts!
I have used the techniques learned here to tune, lube and sharpen my plane…but as I use it the shavings stick to the plane, my hands and arm from static build up. In the past (before stropping to a keen edge), when I was just adequate at sharpening, and before using the rag in a can, I remember just merely turning my plane over and the wood shavings would just fall off the plane as I used it. I haven’t notice this static issue with any of Paul’s videos. It does not seem to matter whether it’s in the winter or summer, static only seems to occur when I use my #4 plane.
Can anyone enlighten me as to why this occurs? Or better yet how to stop it.
