The point of my posts to Derek was to point out that he has been hand planing lumber tear out free with several different planes, some of them bedded at high angles and some not, and all of this well before the 'rediscovery' of the cap iron. Can't un-ring a bell and not sure why one would want to in this instance. Nothing to be ashamed of, in fact quite the opposite.

Final smoothing represents less than 5 percent of the time required to build a project with hand tools. It's over practically before you get started. This is true even if scrapers and sandpaper have to be brought to bear. As such all the talk of 'efficiency' and the other stuff is at best rhetorical, if not outright whimsical daydreaming.
