MisterPaul711: One flaw in his system... You NEVER flatten the finer grit stone on a piece
of sandpaper used for the coarser grit. You introduce particles of the
coarser grit stone onto the surface of the finer grit stone, contaminating
the surface of the finer stone, which produces deeper scratches on the
finer finish you are trying to achieve, and a blade that is not as sharp as
it could be. Instead, ALWAYS use a separate sheet of silicon carbide
sandpaper for flattening each stone, or rinse off the piece between grits
to reduce cross contamination of grits... not so bad on the coarse grit
stone, but bad on the fine grit stone.

GBMorris: That's a really innovative method. It makes you wonder why no one ever came
up with it before. I wonder what the best sand paper grit is for flattening
1too3fore: It would have been better to demonstrate the plane before sharpening to see
what the improvement was in the shaving after sharpening

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
