  1. Hello G S, and thanks for the feedback! The small one is for rapid stock removal, and the big one is for making things flat. That makes perfect sense now that I know, but I'm not sure I would have thought of it myself, thanks. How would I go about treating the wormholes? as you can probably guess, I'm new at this stuff
  2. Yes, I expected as much, but these haven't been touched at all since being stored for 10+ years. I suppose that with a bit of practice with setup and a bit of sharpening they'll do better
  3. I recently inherited a bunch of wooden planes from my granddad, thought this might be a good thread to get some opinions/information/advice on them, full album is here: http://imgur.com/a/xmeEP (inline pictures below are from this album) generally, the planes look to my untrained eyes to be in pretty good shape. The irons and chipbreakers generally have a bit of rust on them, but this is from improper storage since granddad died about ten years ago.

Fortunately, #2 cancels out #1 to some degree (the mk III won't do everything either), and I don't have a lot of non-standard chisels and plane blades to sharpen anyways, so
  5. Hey folks! I'm new here, so if this has been covered already, well, I hope you can bear with me I'm about to place an order for my very first honing guide, and I'm thinking I might as well do it properly or not do it at all, so I'm looking at the veritas mk II honing guide. Any reason why this is a bad idea? should I be looking at something from another supplier for better bang for my buck? I've read up and watched a ton of videos on sharpening, and so far I'm covered for plate glass and sandpaper, I can raise a burr and chase it all around the shop, but I'm in no way confident in my
