How to setup/sharpen a new router plane

    Is there a video somewhere on the site that shows how to sharpen a router plane? I just got one and there's no video under "getting started with hand tools." I thought I saw it somewhere, but I can't remember where. I know there are videos on youtube for this, but I've had success with Rob's way of sharpening chisels and regular plane blades, so I'd like his take on it.

    Have you tried searching the index of videos ? I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Rob sharpen one.

    I looked in Larry's Index here and found the following when searching for router plane -

    -sharpening blade,  Hall Table 22 (00:20),  Cherry Table 15 (25:25), Hanging Cabinet 53 (0:00)

    Sorry it took me a while to get you the video references. I tried searching the index on my iPhone and the Google Docs app last night but it didn't want to play. It may have had something to do with excessive food and drink though. :o)

    I actually just found it myself. I found a comment on Jan 21, 2014 where Rob said "I'm going to show that tonght" so I looked for a video on Jan 21 2014 - Episode 53 of the Hanging Cabinet. You do it just like a chisel.
