Here s how I sharpen I struggled as well for a while as well to get a sharp edge, then for a while longer to get a durable sharp edge. There are many ways to do it, but this works best for me.

- OSU55

That is what I found out too. It is not just having a sharp blade to make the plane work properly. There is more involved which is why it took OSU55 4-5 years and me 6 years to get the plane to work.

And like OSU55, it was reading Brent Beach’s stuff that finally got that sharp blade for me. However I have since left those jigs behind and sharpen two different ways now. I don’t do micro bevels or back bevels anymore but they did get me that first sharp blade.
