Re: What is the goal here ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
The goal, is to turn these near useless short Norris blades into something of full length.

Ok so I gather they are useless for planing lumber. But if you have 40 of them you clearly didn't buy 39 of them to plane lumber. So what is the purpose of these 39 and how does a short authentic blade affect this purpose? To word another way, how will destroying an authentic blade to make it longer be helpful in any way?

Speculating, I would guess most willing to pay the price for these planes would not interested in either buying a bastardized blade for using or collecting.
