      Go back to bed, Lorax!

      Sharpening a 12" planer blade is not for the faint at heart. It requires one to have very specific sharpening stones and very specific jigs to hold the blades at the correct angle. If the blades aren't sharpened exactly the same the tool can become unreliable to the point of dangerous. I'll sharpen my hand planer (and do, quite often), but I won't do my own planer blades.
      I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
