I have start by saying I have GREAT Parents, they are both retired and spend a ton of time at flea markets and antique stores. I mentioned to my father who is a tool aficionado of sorts mostly chainsaws, that I am looking to buy some bench planes and a couple block planes. I also told him if he sees a #113 to snatch it up.
Well in their excitement to help me I now own a really nice #7c and about 4 or 5 #4s, a #9 1/2 and a #220. All users. Pop brings a machinist square with him and knows how to say no to cracked or warped planes, but somehow can’t turn down a usable #4. So down to the actual question are there ways to tune some of the blades for different jobs to make up for the ones I am missing (3,5,6)? I was thinking of cambering one. I have the veritas sharpening jig with both the flat and the camber roller
