concerning router plane narrow blades
 
concerning router plane narrow blades, is there any uses for it? like veritas 1/16", 2mm, 3mm straight blades

Always a use for something eventually. With something like that you just won't need it often, or at least I wouldn't.

Sorry this probably isn't of much help...but they wouldn't make it if some of out here didn't need them on occasion, (or often depending on style of woodworking)...

Any time a narrow dado needs its bottom cleaned up...this is (one of) the tool to do a good job of it accordingly...

Inlay work.

thanks guys, your response is appreciated, before ripng a long bord or resawing a long board is it usable instead of a curf-plane? like makinga thin groove on all the side to help/guide the saw? - hand saw not electric

Hmmm...???

Well, I never thought of using it that way myself, but I suppose it could be "made to work" in that context with some practice and focus...

However, from my perspective and experience Router Planes are a..."surface registration tool" meant to "plane" on a surface just beneath the registration surface above...

While a..."Kerfing Plane"...(of which there are many types) usually registers from the side of the area to be kerfed...

Hope that makes sense?

@Jay C. White Cloud, yes, agreed, it's not usable it on narrow edges, it would need like a jig and it's not worth it to complicate it like this

Yes -- the narrow (and narrowest) Lee Valley router plane blades are most often employed in routing for inlay work.
