I saw a video on Popular Woodworking Magazine where Chris Schwarz was using a #95 to clean up an edge. My question is would you be able to joint an edge with a # 95 if you have a flat face?

Thanks,
Chris

Chris—I don’t think the #95’s bed is long enough to get a properly jointed edge for panel glue-ups, etc.

Maybe on very short pieces. Longer stock with gradual dips would be problematic because the 95 is a relatively short tool that would follow the dips and just smooth them out. You would need a longer plane to successfully joint long boards.

No. I had one for awhile and I didn’t find it very useful.
