And that was only up to 600 grit, and just the corner catching my finger. Went to brush some dust off and slice!
Today turned into sharpening day. I got out of work early and after grilling out I went to work on my jointer blade. 25 degrees was achieved so I pulled out the other grits and started my way through them. I didn’t look hard enough before going to work and during testing I think the blade is still a little curved. So I’ll have to start back down low again and redo it.
While the paper was out I decided to rehone all my other plane irons, then went and got out the chisels. I brought everything through 1000 grit (all my glass would hold at one go) Everything is nice and shiney now. If I have some extra time tomorrow I’ll bring them up through 2000+.
This does point out to me that I need a bench however. Testing the jointer out with a piece of wood clamped in a 4” bench vise (not the wood kind) is not fun.
