Refurbishing an old wooden rebate plane (Bevel down) what is the correct cutting angle/bevel for the plane iron/blade. Have thought of same as chisels 25deg main bevel with a 30 deg bevel for a 1-1.5 mm sharp cutting edge. so less area to sharpen when needed. Thanks
Answering my own. The iron/blade of my wooden rabbit plane iron/blade ground to 25° but a swine to set to get thin strip planed off. May add a 30° secondary bevel this will be around 1mm and resharpening will be quicker as much less of edge to sharpen. Done this on all chisel too.
