Re: Regarding the 0.004”

Warren in Lancaster, PA
I had a nice talk with a German cabinetmaker years ago. At that time I thought everyone used the double iron the way I did.

As to whether there is a stronger double iron tradition in Europe, I don't know. Some seemed to have known it had an effect, but maybe not its full potential. Some have seemed wholly ignorant of the process. I must say I was tempted to keep quiet about it, and probably would have if I had not been towards the end of my career.
