Haha, I secretly enjoy sanding; its monotonous but relaxing. Get a rhythm going and blast some tunes, I can get lost for hours lol

I agree. But my feeling is that if you're going to put in the time to tune a hand plane, get an old Stanley Bailey and tune away.

I've got a big ol' piece of thick glass affixed to a slightly bigger piece of 3/4" cabinet grade ply I used to use to flatten my hand planes and true the sides.

I've got 3-5 old hand planes I never got around to. Someday maybe I'll get to them.

That's the way I feel about sharpening :)
