the test bed *PIC* ()

The 1 inch is the amount of maple you turned into chips, not the total length the chisel chopped? If correct, that is not the metric I would find most useful. Rather how many inches of maple did the chisel drive through. This variable is what dulls.

Now we have another convoluting variable on number of whacks, chip thickness.
