I have bought a few planes at garage sales, tuned and sharpened them, and
played with them; but never actually used one.
As dedicated followers of my posts know, I am building bat houses. I did a
great job of roughing the surface up with an angle grinder; but when it came
time to assemble them, I found a roughed up surface doesn't make a very good
glue surface. What to do...
Pulled out my #5 and restored a flat smooth surface to the outside inch. (if
everything planed like cedar, I might get attached to them)
