Hello boys and girls.
I couldn’t be bothered to search through 1484 topics to maybe find an answe to my problems…
I just got a close to mint Record 071. Paid far to much, but now it is here. I have been playing around with it in different woods, sycamore, oak and pine, whilst trying to sharpen it.. and here is the catch.
How sharp do we need them to be? I realize that this is a question that resembles how much does a fish weigh? But I am still throwing it out here..
Also, when I am using it across the grain, can I expect to get shavings like my no 4 or tearing, as with my chisels…
Sharpening the original blade is truly a pain in the… should I just get the Veritas blade and holder??
Any input and advice will be much appreciated.
