 Re: Novice gouging advice
Author: mberkowski

I do have an extra blade in new condition I could swap in, but hoped to avoid that until I become a little more familiar with the machine and rule out user error. I'm not afraid to tinker a little before I would resort to sending it out for service, but also very aware that novice tinkering could easily put it into a state that would require service.

Do you have recommendations on how to judge sharpness (e.g. thumbnail test on a reed knife) - should the gouger blade cut with little or no downward pressure? I assume sharpness is something an experienced operator just feels.
