    On a cambered iron like a scrub or jack plane? Placement of the cap iron/chipbreaker? And, does anyone bother to reshape a chipbreaker to match the camber?

      Yes, and we show this on the video on converting a number 4 to a scrub. Only thing is we don’t call it chip breaker because that’s not what it is but we understand.

    One problem I had to solve was how to fit window hinges in a second floor room without dropping the window into the garden . The hinge fitting is bad enough .Trying to allow for window movement and layers of paint that will be added later needs attention . The carpentry firm that supplied a replacement wooden window measured the frame gap and made it exactly to that size. No clearance at all . Sometimes I need to ask my wife to help me. Imagine that !
