Purchased a lovely little coffin smoother with a single blade (no cap iron) .
The iron is not correctly hardened, a wire edge can be raised - but not chased.
Rather than learn the necessary skills to harden and temper it - I need a replacement.
The iron is 1/8" thick, 1 1/2" wide, 5" long - flat rather than tapered.
Hock blades are too thick to fit without excavating the wear for clearance.
Are there resources for quality replacement blades in this size?
