Again this is for my Swazi neighbour.
On my post http://lumberjocks.com/topics/89650 I showed his planer hack.
We were chatting and I was showing him on my mobile the LJ site.
He was literally transfixed. You must remember this guy has had no formal training.
None. All self taught. And unexposed to trends and proper tool procedures.
One thing he has got right is the sharpening of the blade.
But reading through LJ the proper angle is 30° ish. So I gave my son’s old geometry set squares and protractor
and with the mobile attempted to lead the blind being blind myself. In doing so we learn.
He asked about the rounding of the blade corners. Not having a square edge.
When he planes bigger pieces of wood it gouges. So softening the corners (got the lingo)
makes the difference.
I’ve looked and searched but no place I can go directly. I pay for expensive data and to roam
and surf is hurting. So I can’t sift and analyse like I should.
must a bailey iron (✅lingo) have a bevel round corner? And if so, how do you get it?
Links would be appreciated.
