Re: Romanillos on planes and breakers

Thanks Tom. Interesting that Jose wrote about using the close set chipbreaker in 2013. I wonder if (although I assume he was) using this setting before 2012, when discussion started up here and on other forums.

By coincidence, Paul Sellers (whom I read with very mixed feelings) posted today on his blog how he sets up his #4 smoothers. The chipbreaker is best set 2-3mm from the edge. I can only assume that he is working very different woods to Jose.

Regards from Perth

Derek
