I’m about to spend a good part of a day tomorrow tuning up tools. Up until now, I’ve had cambers of various degrees on all but block planes without a lot of logic. But I think tomorrow, I’m gonna try grinding everything straight with just slightly rounded off corners to prevent tearing at edges. If I owned a scrub, that might be an exception.To answer the original question, my jointer has always been straight with eased corners. I wouldn’t really call it a camber. And I do it freehand.
