So I think I’m as far as I want to go on this plane. The only thing left is to figure out how to sharpen it so that it actually works. I have it sharper then sharp, can shave with it. But it just doesn’t want to cut when pushed. So Any suggestions on that will be appreciated.
It seems as though it has the wrong blade, or something. The lateral adjustment lever doesn’t have anything to grab, so you can’t adjust the left to right angle. I also don’t understand exactly what the frog is. I thought it was a wedge of sort to adjust the angle of the blade, but on this plane the blade sits on fixed metal, and is alone with the chip breaker. So you can’t adjust the angle. Also the chip breaker seems short, and is hidden behind the lever cap. So it doesn’t go down to the tip of the blade where I would think it would reach.
Anyhow, I have taken several pictures of the plane. Maybe you all can see things that are missing or wrong. Please point out what I can do different, what is missing, etc, so that the I will know on the next one. Thanks.
