Yes, it's not like everytime i plane i whip out the micrometer. ...i've stopped measuring after i've gotten the veritas.

But measuring has its use to me. It tells me how tuned a plane is back when i made 2 of them.

Hey Timber,

FYI, it always remind me of you whenever i get to use my mujingfang palmsized handplane i got as a freebie from one of our EBs before. Very tough blade. I use it for chamfering sharp edges of some projects usually utility carts...have never sharpened it in fact. Very very useful!

I still dont have a micrometer though to measure my shavings...and i dont intend to buy tomorrow or in the near future unless i started making my own roll of tissue paper out of my plane shavings. You know baby face pako! Hahahaha
I think i was a woodworker in my previous life...and the life previous to that.

Unless you intend to join a contest abroad or something, I know very few people that buys handplanes to see how thin a shaving they can get.


:lolno: Maybe after you measure it, you can display it on a wall, then invite the those interested in very thin shavings from a handplane to see how well you did. :think:

Ok, you just give me an idea. It is easier to counter check how tuned your plane is with a micrometer, is that correct?

You must understand that a sharp blade will not produce thin shavings. It also depends on the flatness of the sole and angle of the blade and the bevel of that blade not to mention the type of wood that you are going to plane.

I have never seen anyone planing a kamagong (phil ebony) with paper-thin shavings.

^that's my first plane ever. It's available at ace, try megamall or shangrila. Not low angle, 25 degree iirc. Blade is ok...

As there no more record planes in the local market, it's the only decent choice i know of. Groz is unfamiliar territory for me.

The Groz block plane is about 600 to 700 at Panda. Adjustable mouth.

I don't know if its better than that Stanley, but it did what it's supposed to do.

Unfortunately, Groz Block Plane is not available at Panda also their Jack Plane not Available.
Saw at OLX Jack Plane from Groz at little bit higher price.

Best is 2nd hand market in the US, a Stanley 60 or 9 1/2 is nice.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.
