Bead cluster plane? *PIC* ()

>Paul,

Wow, that's a cool profile. That shape would add lots of interest & shadow lines no matter how the light hits it.

Can you post a picture of both sides of the iron at the business end? My wife saw the plane and wants to know how the cutting edge is ground to produce this profile. I've tried to explain the cutting geometry, using lots of gesticulatory supplementation (arm waving) but alas, my words and gestures apparently don't impart the required information. A picture is worth a thousand words, eh?
