I hate to Hi Jack a thread .... BUT..... "O" Lord I have to ask this....... How graceful are you are gargling Peanut butter. :lol: :lol: :lol:Wannabe said:Went to Trade Days in Winnie today and about took off the end of my little finger on a wooden plane. :shock: Ya might know that the one plane with a sharp blade was sticking out the bottom of the plane. Lost presence of mind and put my hand on the bottom without looking.
I started my first paddle - a Greenland. I couldn't find the tool to taper the blades til I remembered where I left my small plane. It took a while to get it set right, since it's a $9 piece of junk from Home Despot. The depth setting feels like "all"or nothing. When I figured out I had to support the back of the paddle (since the wood was flexing & making the plane "chatter"), it was magic. The plane just glided, and long ribbons of shavings fell off. Probably mundane for folks with more experience, but it made my day. After five hours with the plane, jigsaw, and handsaw, I have a bowtie shaped 2x4.Wannabe said:A plane makes no noise like a skilsaw. The noise and feel a well tuned plane makes and gives is soothing to the soul.
