Well I spent over 3 hours getting the iron and chip breaker sharp and square and wow. I had left them in this state Friday.
The iron had a heavy camber to it. But with some honing.
There is a tiny bit of damage to the corners but I had removed a lot of material and the damage will be removed with future sharpening.
The first chips on the edge of a 2/4.
Not to bad.
I had to get a piece of walnut and give it a try.
I am pleased with the outcome. Not bad for $22.00 plus shipping. To me that is the worst part of eBay is the shipping cost.
Thanks William for the Walnut.
