273594 Ken Wright 2021‑05‑05 Scrub planes (was Re: flattening a large slab)
Gathered Galoots,

Andrew's post got me to thinking.  I have a crappy Stanley "Handyman"
#3 that I'd like to use as a scrub.  Can anyone recommend a radius to
grind the iron?  Or is that more a matter of personal taste?

On a personal note, the gem of my tools is my Stanley Handyman #4.  It
was my father's, and was the first plane I ever used.  I wouldn't part
with it for anything!
