That's why one needs more than one of each plane size :lol:ydb1md":s8jt4uqc said:I've got a 3c and I, personally, don't like the corrugations. I don't think I'd buy a jack or larger plane w/ corrugations because it makes edge planing or jointing more difficult. Manufacturers should advocate some sort of sole lubricant rather than machining grooves in the iron.
How easy is the #95 to use? I've looked longingly at the offering by Veritas but the only review that I've read wasn't very positive. I've tried the Veritas jointer fence and it does the job but the dedicated edge planes seem so much more elegant. The jointer fence takes a lot of concentration to keep your force applied to the proper axis(s) -- consistent downward force so as to keep the edge straight, force to keep the fence against the board face but not so much as to pop the fence off of the plane etc . . .MikeW":1bozjohn said:Then there are the #95s for final passes on board edges to ensure they are square to a face...
People who use jointers (straight blades) can match plane edges and don't need anything else. I think the #95 is for cleaning up the small dip left by a try plane with a cambered iron. :lol:Alf":2od2os1w said:I must confess, I've never understood the point of the #95. You joint an edge, right? You use a nice long plane in order to get it straight. Then you take an itty bitty short plane to get the edge at 90 degs. Where's the sense in that? :? Takes twice as long as doing it all with the jointer and surely you run the risk of fouling up your straight edge? Can someone explain it to me, 'cos it worries me when I don't feel I can justify every plane in the book... 8-[ :lol: Unless it's one of those tools for people who joint with a straight blade edge, in which case that probably explains the need... :wink:
ummmm.... I do... straight edge blade that is... and I don't need one o them edge squaring thingies neither... but then, I'm weird (apparently), don't use the jointer on edges neither...Unless it's one of those tools for people who joint with a straight blade edge
So Mike, I'm not quite clear on this. Are you saying you like it or not...? :lol:MikeW":11l7cge2 said:Why do I love thee #95, let me count the ways...
Oh, there are other ways I love thee, #95...
I blame the meds on the silly outbreak. I mean, two "literary" (and I do mean that loosely) references in as many days!Alf":2sv0t5t7 said:...So Mike, I'm not quite clear on this. Are you saying you like it or not...? :lol:
