Good job, Andy. Thanks; I needed that . Don’t know anything about planes, but am trying to learn, and as they say, a picture is worth ten thousand words, but a video is priceless.
Have a good’un

Doc, I picked up on the new and Knew also. You have to give him a break though, he is a Kiwi after all : )No offence Andy, people just expect some Australian New Zealand rivalry !It’s a good simple tutorial, but after having recently bought a number 4 stanley at the flea market, and gone through the same steps, I found that although it seems insignificant, the fact that your sandpaper is lifting off your flat jointer surface at the back, actually makes a difference. You’ll wear away the back edge more.
Out of interest, is your lack of thumbnails due to a woodworking accident ?I’m certainly lacking some nail due to ‘user error’ myself.

Yep. Lazy speller. That is me. The thumbs came from my mothers side bless her. Not the nicest looking but don’t slow me down. I was never that good at skinning possums with them lol.Appreciate your comments guys.Andy.

First rate, Andy. You showed a couple of techniques that was shown to me when I learned. The technique of keeping your arms and hands locked and swaying your body back and forth is worth the price of the video alone, er, worth much more than the price of the video, er, never mind. I still get a little dizzy when I sharpen. Reminds me of the feeling I had when I got my sea legs working offshore Alaska. Sardines, a bottle of mustard, and 40- foot seas don’t mix, trust me on this one. The other technique is not so much a technique but the truth about the time it takes to flatten the sole of a plane. I’ve watched a couple of videos where it appears the sole was perfectly flattened after just a few strokes. The magic of editing with no disclaimer. You did the process justice by letting the watcher know it does take time, not so much on LN, but Stanleys, Miller Falls, Craftsman, yep, it takes time. Using the lever cap as a screwdriver is a classic. Don’t you know you need one of them cute little antique rifle repair screwdrivers to properly tighten the chip breaker? Keep em coming.
