The planing breakaway aid is from the April issue of WWJ – an alternative to chamfering the edge before you plane. You can make one in 5 – 10 minutes.
I have a Veritas low angle block plane with a 25-degree blade in it for planing endgrain. When I want to use it as a standard block plane, I change the blade to one that’s sharpened at 33 degrees (the bed angle is 12 degrees, together the cutting angle will be 45 degrees) – an alternative to having two block planes!
