Touched them up w/plane

Posted by MWagar on Nov 17, 2004

Allen, Thanks, I was not happy with the fit of the factory machined scarfs. I work with a block plne almost every day, so I keep it finely tuned, it was not that hard to "sharpen" the scarfs to improve the fit. I do caution anyone that wants to so the same, you must have a very sharp plane and know how to tune the plane well. The glue used to laminate okume plywood is very hard on cutting tools. I had to resharpen my plane several times, failure to do this could result in a terrible mess if you rip up the wood. Good Luck
