If it feels good when using it, I wouldn’t bother. I would say, just work with it a while and then decide. The first one I made, I used it for a few weeks and then made adjustments. You may find places that pinch or poke you when holding it to use that you don’t see just by looking.

Very nice looking plane, is that an baily style iron you modified? How did you like the book, it is one I have been dying to purchase. Oh, and what is the sole made from?
