Thanks for all of your input, my house is under construction right now and I can’t play with my planes in my inlaws’s house. Nevertheless I played with them on Saturday in my woodworking classes and here are the results:

The 25° Blade is SHARP! It left significant tracks since it has 0 camber in it… but it was fun to take half thou shavings! hope to build some shooting boards soon…

The 38° cambered blade worked, but had shavings fit for a smoother… maximum width of shavings w/o leaving tracks, about a thou.

Didn’t even try the 50° blade…. the toothed blade was fun to use…. hope to use it functionally in the future…

What now?

I’ll try to continue cambering the 38° Blade. I haven’t developed the skill under the grinder, It is hi speed and I always find out a way to untemper the blade.

Derek’s recommendation of re-grounding the primary angle sounds doable. I’ll give it some thought and I will come back with the results…
