i am so sorry my photo is not working, trying to find instructions on how to upload images
thank you so much for your kind and friendly reply and advises, i am really happy to be part of this forum and all things relating to woodwork
i reshape blades to 17 degrees because i find eliminating the bur very difficult for a novice, although i should have got it doing by hand for few years now i still get a better edge with stropping. but stropping always increase the angle by introducing a secondary bevel, and i really feel the low angle gives so much pleasure to use especially on end grains. also with a slicing cut with a lower angle solves the problem better for me than with a high angle plane for example.
nice to meet you!! thanks again!!
