How to Use a Toothed Handplane Blade
If you’re like me, you visit the Lie-Nielsen Toolworks website frequently, looking for new and interesting tools. But I also use the site to learn about hand tools and how they should be set up or sharpened. In this video, Lie-Nielsen’s Deneb Puchalski demonstrates the advantages of using a toothed blade for roughing out work with a low angle jack plane. At 1:48 in the video, notice the mirror polish on the bottom of the plane. Love it… Deneb does a lot of tool and sharpening demonstrations at woodworking shows. If you get a chance, check out his demos; you won’t regret it.
