I’ve been working on my plane blades, trying to get them in shape. I have a course dmt diamond stone, 1000, 6000, and 8000 grit waterstones. My Stanley #5 required almost 4 hrs to flatten the back on the diamond stone; my Lie-Nielsen took 15 minutes. When those blades came off the diamond stone, they were shiny enough to show reflections. After moving to the 1000 grit waterstone, however, they become a dull but smooth grey, with no visible scratches. After moving through my three waterstones, i can’t get them to that polished mirror finish that people recommend. Tried the same thing with a chisel, the only shine i could achieve was on the micro-bevel. Am i not spending enough time on the waterstones? After a plane back is flat, how long should it take to get the good shine? Thanks in advance.
