Yep, I have tried sliding the blades in opposite directions but to no avail. Funny thing is that I never had this kind of problem when planing Ash and Maple, but when I started planing soft resinous pine, the issue popped up. Maybe it is the resin that picks up the sandy grit that causes this, as that would make sense.

BTW, I have replacements, plus the other side of the current set of blades, just been a bit lazy and reluctant to swap them out just yet, aka so soon. Mostly just clean up with the 1/4-sheet sander, though I did miss a couple lines on my last project, a 6-board chest lid.

Extra layers of milk paint saved the day, at least until the cat puked on it this past week and peeled the paint. Actually I think this is a result of using the “commercial” milk paint. I am convinced that that company just uses powdered milk to make their milk paint WITHOUT going through the curdling process, a necessary step in making the paint more stable and stronger binding. My DIY batches of milk paint have NOT had that kind of issue, and yes I have had some cat drool on these other batches without effect. Interesting paint lesson learned, for sure…
