getting rid of pencil marks on wood: rubbing alcohol dissolves graphite
I have a Makita power hand planer Model 1900B. I am purchasing new blades for it and considering ordering the mini carbide bit set (Makita D-17239 3-1/4" Planer Blades - Carbide Mini Blades & Set Plate) I also notice that you can order replacement Mini blades only and they are available with three different angles. 35, 50, and 65 degrees. My question is how would I decide which to order.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
