How I Set Up My Hand Planes – Ask Matt #9

March 12, 2015

This time I show how I set up my hand planes.  I show how I sharpen the blade, how I add camber, chip breaker setting, throat adjustment, blade alignment, and depth of cut.  An then we make some shavings!

This is the ninth episode of my Ask Matt series where I answer broader topic questions.  If you have an idea for a topic for a future episode, please let me know.

  • Again, thank you Matt. I appreciate your comment back to me and I will put some cash in your account. You make me smile. When you said “weeeee” with the shavings I knew that your newborn will have a great dad.

      Thank you, Bill. I had a great time making this video. It’s always fun once the shavings start flying!
