My mother just gave me her old veritas scraping plane she doesn't use anymore. Until recently i havent had much of a use for it but recently my wood river #5 has started to give me tear out on some panels I've glued up with less than perfect grain directions. I plan on resharpening my #5, moving the frog forward a little and trying again but figured this would be a good chance to get the scraping plane ready for use. I've heard they're difficult to set up and sharpen but am wondering if there's some suggestions to make it easier. Also been wondering about burnishing the blade, could i use a honing steel for kitchen knives or will i need something else?
