I’ve been exploring and using hand planes more and more over the last two years but could use advice on cambering the blade. I utilize a granite stone, sandpaper, and the Veritas honing gauge to sharpen my blades…and this method does get them ‘scary sharp’.
I have ‘rescued’ an old #5 I want to turn into a ‘tweener’ plane to use after my traditional scrub plane but before my #8.
Any advice on how to properly camber the blade would be appreciated.
File, grinder…before or after sharpening, etc?
