Ruler Trick with Spokeshave Blade

James Blandford-Baker
Do any of you have ideas for using the ruler trick (aka 'The Charlesworth'!) with the short blades of the Boggs L-N spokeshaves? They are a bit tricky to handle and of course the angle of the polished bit on the back is steeper (since nearer to the ruler) than with a standard plane blade, unless one could find a way of artificially lengthening the blade while doing the polishing.

Thanks!

James
