Re: Question about setting blade exposure

David Weaver
I think if the shaving is being worked, you're getting most of the effect. If it's coming out of a plane, not shortened so much (that's a pretty stout set), but just straightening some.

When you plane something like maple (too much recent experience), it'll be 95% super bright and then with a couple of spots of small tearout. You can plane it safely with a set that straightens the chip a little bit and then back the setting off and take your finish passes without changing anything on the plane and be in good shape.

Usually, if you have to resort to putting the cap in office paper distance, you're going to end up with a surface that's a little fuzzy to the touch because some of the fibers are facing right back into the blade. If they lean enough either way otherwise and are packed closely together, the surface is pretty good.

Any work to the shaving (other than allowing the shaving to curl up into a tight curl - no effect), kind of lets you know that nothing catastrophic that would cause you to blow past a mark will happen.
