I'm a wood guy. I just got into making my own planes. Now I want to
get into making my own plane blades. Made my first foray to my local
scrap metal dealer today. Wow. Is there any way I can tell what sort of
steel I'm looking at? I want O-1, but any tool steel will do for now.
I understand spark tests (but returned the book to the library
already). The bits I bought today have sparks 2 feet long that start
orange and are white at the tips.
Thanks for your patient advice.
