    A couple more 4/1

    I'm ready to order whatever tools they make out of the new steel! Wonder if it will work on table saw blades?

    Ya, I bet the wood turners are just frothing at the mouth, imagine a turning tool that never need sharpening!!!!! in your dreams!!

    I read somewhere that that hand saw also has sensors in the handle and if you vary off the line a little it shocks you. Kind of a training device.

    It is April Fool's Day! I can see a problem with the self sharpening steel right away - how do they make it self sharpen easily along the entire edge? Now make me a plane that automatically adopts the ideal cutting depth.

    OH! Sorry, I didn't get the 4/1. In Canada, at least in the government, it's 1/4.

    Jeeze Roger its due to the pre-defined shear lines in the steel that cause it to peal off at a constant rate across the entire tool edge. Don't you know anything about how powdered metal tools work?

    That would be a good one for LV for next year...

    Maybe a "swiss army" plane that has a variety of blades you can "flip into place" and automatically set with the "digital depth adjuster with 150 different set points for different planing techniques".

    Didn't Stanley make one in the 19th century?
