I am in the middle of working on an edge float similar in design to the Lie-Nielsen one. I don't have one on hand to reference though, and I had a couple questions:
- Is the angle formed by the blade critical? (The actual angle of the overall triangle shape, not the rake angle of the teeth.) Mine is currently something like 9.5 degrees. I am planning on using ~10 degree plane wedges mostly.
- Is it really important that it taper to a super fine point? I feel like almost every tool will have 1/8" of blade so it does not seem super critical for the tip to be much narrower than 1/8".
