  1. honing in blade-reversed is a lot easier .. now the blade has three bevels lol
  2. yes, because i couldn't find in my area any honing guide even a cheap one or the Stanley model .. i had to hone it by hand but didn't master it .. this blade bevel is very short and it's hard to reference it freely by hand .. i needed something temporary till i can buy from the net something very good .. i think with the c-clamp because of the screw is somehow is similar and found it works but hard to square up the blade but still helps as something momentary
  3. i've made a simple honing guide out of a cheap 3" c-clamp & a scrap wood to raise up the clamp a little .. it's not practical for changing a bevel angle but honing a blade to it's current bevel - it still missing a double sided tape to temporary fix the wood to the clamp
  4. despite cost and money, if you can afford a premium - like veritas or any other - low-angle jack plane + skew rabbet plane or any dedicated plane for rabbeting, infront a jack rabbet plane what would you prefer to buy for your use
  5. thanks wtnhighlander, my native language is arabic which some words expretions we can say to stangers normally without taking in account any misunderstanding .. so when i translated it to english it msybe meant something else
  6. now i understood what do mean when say the word paring .. thanks you wtnhighlander i thought before paring is just small grooves where a plane can't go in
  7. i've seen many says 3/8" & 1/2" for dovetails, just want to clarify about this, i looks they mean for the dovetail sockets that are 3/8" & 1/2" wide, my question when working with dovetails - should the chisels par the socket with one pas or doesn't matter for the joint if a narrower chisel is used .. and where can i learn more about designing or layout the sizes and pattern of dovetails, i still can't know much about the widths of the pins and the sockets and about the spacing
  8. meaning is like sir, it's not my language so often i get in words that gets misunderstood
  9. thanks you so much, but need to ask, for a 3/4" dado is it necessary for a 3/4" chisel?
  10. about chisels, if i have 1/4" 1/2" & 1", are 3/8" & 3/4" needed? and for what 2" is used - is it worth it to get it a premium one or it's rarely used .. and with respect to dado's or grooves, what is the most common width in cabinet joinery
  11. @Tpt life @drzaius thanks you this point is now clarified to me, instead of another block plane, a smother /small plane/ would be a better option for smaller stock
