Shout Out for Ron Hock’s Blog

leave a comment »

For over a decade I have used Ron’s blades in my block planes, the original carbon blades. With waterstones, I can get a sharp edge that will neatly plane bamboo (bamboo fly fishing rods). So like many other bamboo rod makers, I subsribe to Ron’s blades as an upgrade to my plane(s).

Today, I decided to order a couple of more custom blades and came across Ron’s great blog, so here is a shout out for Ron.

I particular like the discussion on rust and his electrolysis setup (as illustrated within).

Goto to http://hocktools.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/rust-part-3/  for the details.
