Re: Wire edges question

Wire edges question ()

Brian Holcombe
In my experience if the wire edge persists the cut is very lousy. I don’t consider an edge to be sharpened at that point, so if I managed to leave a wire edge I remove the blade and sharpen it again.

A machine planer is taking a much different kind of cut, and that too benefits from a fine edge.
