    Bought a Faithfull diamond sharpening stone (400/1000), honing guide and some green compound which arrived yesterday. I'd stuck some leather onto a scrap bit of wood a few days previously so spent a couple of hours sharpening stuff last night. it quite relaxing in a way. Did both plane blades and a spoke plane at 30 degs not bothered with a micro bevel on the diamond block and then onto a 3000 stone, finishing off with the leather and compound. It's the first time I've had such a shiny blade/bevel it like a mirror.

    Is it the Faithfull one with the built in stone holder thing with two steel rods on rubber feet?
    If so even just the holder alone is worth the cost I paid for mine (about 24 quid if I remember right) and its a decent size, way better than the smaller ones I've bought.

    Also it's nice to have another plane blade with a cambered edge so it takes a bigger shaving at the centre, means it can take a shaving from a board wider than the plane sole without leaving track marks with the blade corners.

    It is, 38 with the stone, guide and compound.
    Todays lesson. if planing a sticking gate to take a fraction off, if you hit something do not assume its a knot and give it a couple more passes. Three nicks in my super duper sharpened blade by a panel pin Spent a further half hour getting them out.

    What's the advantage of the twisted handle?

    I don't know yet...its the only 10mm they had other than a stubby....I would imagine it gives a flat surface to pull against rather than an edge, but its too long...I can break fasteners with my existing short combi....

    Unfortunately, they weren't designed that way.

    Bought this little doohicky

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-Wood-...72.m2749.l2649





    For the price cant fault it. Now all we need is someone with a 3D printer to make a longer one for wider pieces of wood and there is a nice little earner here.....
