Question for Wiley re Stanley Bedrock 5 1/2
Response To:
The bug bit me too ()

E Phillip Smith
If I remember correctly one of your favorite planes is a 5 1/2. Do you have a bedrock 5 1/2 and if so what is the blade width. I have a Stanley 5 1/2 bedrock and the blade measures 2 1/4" wide. Lee Valley does not sell a 2 1/4" wide blade and my 3V, and M4 irons are 2 3/8" wide. Looks like I will need to custom grind a blade to width.
