New router blade

So, I made a dado (table saw) and needed to clean up the bottom.
routerSeems like an ideal job for the router plane. Except the dado is ¼” and I only have the ½” blade. Soooo, a chunk of scrap 3/8″ stainless rod (¼” is too small to be clamped in the plane), cut a vee on one side and a slot, then a bit of ¼” O-1 plate welded on the end, grind, heat red hot, dunk in veggie oil (smells dandy, motor oil is incredibly rank), temper in the oven and spend way too much time on the diamonds (gotta learn to draw the temper a bit more) and next morning, voilà, ten minutes to a nice dado.
