Re: Hammer

AFAICS the surface can be no more scalloped than any two bladed block. Is that right? With the skew, you presumably have a load of length-wise scallops as well as the width-ways ones. Yes but the difference compared to a straight knifed block is surely tiny. It's a bit late in the day for fancy tri...

Re: Hammer

AFAICS the surface can be no more scalloped than any two bladed block. There may be microscopic lines between the cutters but, as Doug says, you expect a bit of finishing after the thicknesser. I can see if you change the tips and do not clean the surface properly you may run into trouble but that i...

Re: What wood do you reckon this is?

My instinct was pitch pine, but it has a bit of a look of hemlock about it. I think hemlock is a bit 'dustier' than pitch pine. I wouldn't have thought either pitch pine nor Douglas fir would irritate. I was wondering if it might be macrocarpa, which can be horrible to use, but unlikely to be sold ...

Re: Veritas VS Lie-Nielsen

I shall check out Quangsheng, you do raise a valid point vs the bench plane. Perhaps I would be better to invest the money on a better bench plane. FWIW the best smoother is the coffin shaped Veritas bevel up wehich will plane almost anything when sharpened at 45 deg and is fine for normal work at ...

Re: Veritas VS Lie-Nielsen

Personally I don't think the extra cost is justified on a block plane and I would go for a Quangsheng. That is light years better than Stanley or Record but half the price of LN or VTS.

Bench planes are a different matter as they have to work harder/better for their living.

Definitely pitch pine. Its usually full of resin even the really old stuff.
