    Your measurements convert to aprox. 8-1/4" x 5/8" x 1/8" Here in USA it is probably attainable. Seems like a standard jointer size.

    reccomendation for planer knive sharpening

    I forgot to say that when using it on a bench (as in photo)... you can use a single cut file to draw file the heavy nicks out. To do this, you hold the file at 90 degrees to the knives and stroke down the length, applying even downward pressure. Using a file this way will quickly remove the...

    reccomendation for planer knive sharpening

    This was my solution for my Dewalt Planer. I cut 2 slots into MFD at the angle marked on the end (for future reference). The slots are a tight fit when I insert the blades. I then set the unit on the bench (as seen in photo), then use a diamond honing stone stroking down the length resharpening...

    Dewalt rip fence out of alignment?

    I would remove the fence and investigate. A good chance it was removed before and not re-installed correctly. Look for the simple things that may have been missed first. It may help to post the model of your saw to get a better response.

    7/16" round file, can't find one

    The plane I am making has a spring angle of 45 degrees, and has a 45 degree bed angle for the iron (for soft wood). It should end up making a molding profile that will consist of a 1/16"rebate with a 1/4" radius and ending with another 1/6" radius.

    7/16" round file, can't find one

    J-G, I ordered a Nicholson 12199 12" round smooth cut file. I can't find a Bahco 1-230-12-2-2 here in USA. I would have ordered a Bahco if it was available, the quality is suppose to be much better than Nicholson. Hopefully it will work. The File I ordered is tapered... my thinking is I should...

    I am making a molding plane and I would like to find a 7/16" diameter round file. Ideally it would be the same diameter from end to end, and have a fine cut (like a chainsaw file). So far the closest thing I have found is a rat tailed (tapered) turnip cut (quite coarse) in a 3/8" diameter. I...
