You don't know if its the Hock blades? Get the old irons out and put Hock blades and breakers in your Bailey planes. You won't regret it and you'll most likely ask yourself: Why did I wait so long?
I have the high carbon blades in my old Bailey planes(3,4, 5). I also have blades for the 3 and 4 in the A2. I can't tell that much difference after months of use and comparing. The A2 does last longer but I get an incredible edge on the high carbon. I called Ron Hock and he said that is not unusual for users to get the keener edge on the HC blade. I love his blades. I just bought 300 feet of wide birdseye maple and I am going to make another steep angle wooden plane(55 degrees) for the job. I had one with a hock blade and loved it. My friend liked it more than me.... he still has it. Its all good. Get some blades for the old boys and put them to work.
Excellent. Very nice work. I've got a collection of Bailey planes of various sizes .... and a Record jointer plane. I also have a jointer and a jack plane that I made. Guess which planes get the most use. I don't know if it is the Hock blades in the planes that I made or what, but the ones I made just do a much nicer job. I have seriously considered replacing the blades and chip breakers in the Baileys with Hock. Keep up the good work.
