Bevel Up, and not-so-micro bevels


Recommended Posts

To compliment the new power tools, I'm going to buy a Veritas BU Jointer plane, for those times when my #5 just isn't big enough. A higher angle blade would help deal with grain changes, but I'm thinking, instead of buying a second blade, why not just put a 38° "micro" bevel (or pick your own angle) on the included 25° blade? Once established, it's just like any micro-bevel, yes?

The discussion tends toward grind angles as opposed to micro bevels. I think that is just easier to manage with a power grinder and minimizes the time spent hand honing. If you want to walk a steep micro and increase the primary grind over time, I don't see anything to stop you.
