Research project

The last couple of weeks I have been very quiet on this blog. There's a reason why. I have been busy doing a bit of research and research is often a secret business. Anyway, first part of the research is now finished and published on Steve Elliott's website. Knowing me, the subject can't be a surprise. Comparison of methods to avoid tearout when using a handplane. The link:

While you are overthere, don't forget to browse through Steve's site. It has very interesting stuff. He has a second one: Bladetest
He discovered and described how the edge wears in a handplane, and that it is different from edges in powertools who have been researched a lot. That is quite a feat!
