    Hey Rob,

    Just got the 4 1/2 and loving it.  How much of an improvement would the IBC blade make vs the stock blade?  Is it worth the $99 investment?

    Thanks

    Hey, Rob. I also recently bought the WR 4 1/2 and would like to know your answer to the question from Mr. Anonymous about whether it is worth upgrading to the IBC iron. I was able to get a great edge on the WR iron, but it did seem to succomb to white oak fairly quickly and needed resharpening fairly quickly to avoid tear out.

    I was at Woodcraft the other day and was trying out the different planes and wanted to see how the 5 1/2 handle compared to mine as my pinky seems to get pinched on the bottom and usually have to leave it pointing out like my index finger. It was the same in the store, however, the 4 1/2 did not seem to do this. I was wondering if anyone else had the same experience. 

    I'll have to try again with the 6 and 7 next week if I get back there to see how they compare.

    Hi Matty, I am going to do a jointer video.  It will be more along the lines of using it since the set up of blade, breaker and lever cap are the same as on the smoother.  cheers

    hello everyone I bought i woodriver low angle block plane and when flattening the bottom i found that one corner was ground way to deep about 1/8 inch from corner i can never flatten to that deep i would be lapping for ever.  So i bought a new plane iron which was a HOCK blade high carbon which that is way thinner then the stock blade from woodriver and the slots on the blade are to small for the adjuster to seat right.  On jewelry box build eposide 44 rob talks about his low angle block plane blade which he changed to a IBC and it doesnt fit right because theres no lateral adjustment .  So what can I do is there a better blade out there that would work or am I just out of luck for finding a blade that will work with this plane?????
