Re: I'll demonstrate thick sometime ..

David, one area I am interested to hear about from you is a comparison of the #18 and the #62 in regard to effort to push a high cutting angle.

My expectation is that you will find the #62 much easier to push than the #18 ... because the centre of effort will change quite significantly.

The #18 requires that you push down as much as you push forward. The #62 allows one to push from low on the handle, and the force vector is parallel to the bench top and forward.

What I have written about quite extensively in the past is the low centre of effort possible with BU bench planes. This does not include BU block planes since they lack a handle. The issue here is the effort requires to push a BU plane with a high cutting angle. Compared with the same cutting angle in a BD plane, and the same thickness shaving, I think that the BU plane will surprise you :)
