gelcoat shaver

I have seen one in use and it looked like a hand held planer with a carbide blade. When I had to strip gelcoat on one of my boats, I purchased a planer and tried it. It works great for about 1 minute, then the blade is dull. The original blades are high speed steel rather than carbide. There is one place I know that sells carbide blades for hand planers. http://www.fiberglasssupply.com/Product_Catalog/ShapingTools/shapingtools.html
