|Thread: Plane and simple|
I have among other planes a Record 4-1/2 and a 5-1/2 jack also Record, both of these planes were new when I bought them some 25 or so years ago. Over the years I have listened to and read various pieces of advice on plane sharpening and trueing, most of them, as is the above article, very good and sound. However my problem with these two planes is that no matter well they are trued up , with sharp (very sharp) blades, I always seem to have one side of the b lade with a deeper set than the other side, and although the lever can rectify this, it is obviously not correct. My own suspicion is that the front seating of the frog is out of true. Any ideas anyone. Incidentally i also have a Norris panel panel and a Calvert Stevens smoother, no probs with them.
