so much faster with a ...

I know its probably anathema to this forum but I've built a C18 and a WR164 and on both I used a cheap Ryobi handheld electric planer which makes the whole thing go so fast its not even funny. You can plane both shear clamps completely in about 15 min once you learn how the thing works. It has an adjustable fence which limits the feed in to sub-millimeter depths and it costs less than a good quality block plane.

Just my 2 cents...
