Decided to give my plane irons some honing today. Decided to try tackling the shoulder plane first as I knocked it out of square and had to re-square it previously, and sure as sunrise, it was still not square (which explains a few things). So, I decided to try my hand at the grinder again. Got the tip ground square, but for the life of me I couldn't keep it that way as I re-ground the bevel. Somethings off in my technique, and after two tries, I decided to that was enough for now.
I'm thinking a grinding rest would help keep things square. I like the looks of what Lee Valley/Veritas has to offer, and was wondering if anyone has used this and what they think of it.
