After I stopped working on my bench to build the planing stops I thought about some other things that needed to be done to move my project along quicker. I’ve been thinking about sharpening my rip saw again but have stalled it in my desire to work on the bench. Last night I found a finer file I picked up from Lie-Nielsen and touched up the saw. As I worked I could see that there were some area’s that I needed the work and as soon as I finished I gave it a test run. It melted through the 2” pine with no problem and vastly improved my sawing. In light of that today’s project is to take my jack plane iron to work so I can grind a curve into it and then tonight sharpen and hone it and the jointer blades.
