Post: RE: #605 1/2 hand plane blade size

Here, a Dremel cut-off wheel might be a good friend,  if you mind the temperature to avoid "losing the temper". The hardened part of the blade near the cutting end will not draw-file.   For a vinta...

My build is about 85% done.    I couldn't take the anticipation any more, so I installed just enough stuff to check the sound in 1st chord position.   The unconventional (but well liked by many) oak s...

Yes -- but only for original Titebond I type:   he loosens it with heat (& possibly moisture).     He does say he can't loosen the Titebond 2/ 3 PVA glue types this way.

Very nice tools! Just from memory, I suspect the Ulmia might have been a toothing plane (if it had its original blade).    That actually sounds pretty useful, no matter which way you go.
