Re: spear point router plane blades

Josko Catipovic
I take this as saying that each side of the (spear) blade is angled towards the wood so the cutting angle is not the issue, but the tip is set to cut deeper than the ends of the spear. It's a bit like having an uneven blade in a hand plane, with one end set to cut deeper than the other. The cutting angle is still correct, but the cut is not even.
