I recently got into woodworking and because I’m living in Japan I’m going with Japanese tools.
I decided to set up my Japanese plane. I set up the body and moved to the blade. With the blade I started with the back and then moved to the bevel.
The bevel was quite rounded on top so I took me quite a while to get that flat. Only to notice I got the angle across the blade wrong. So now the right side of the blade has a slightly longer bevel than the left side. I was wondering how much this would affect the performance but when I took it o my shootingboard, I soon noticed that that wasn’t shooting straight anymore.
Did I ruin this blade or can I still salvage it with a lot of work on a diamond plate? If so how can I find the correct angle again?
Or should I save myself the trouble and look for a new plane?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
