Morning all. I’ve been watching a number of Youtube videos on DIY planer blade sharpening. While I would like to have a sharpening rig like the guy on AskWoodman, it ain’t likely. What do you guys use and what do ya think of it? Thanks

Use a service. Locally they cost 1 dollar an inch and are worth hours and hours of your frustration.

Thanks for the excellent tips gents. I really like that DIY thing (I do that whenever I can).
SAS. I have a Dewalt 735. It’s starting to get more and more use and I’m starting to feel tiny ridges in my stock after planing. I’m thinkin’ they’re gonna get bigger
