Chris Schwarz wrote about this type of thing happening, he talked to Ron Hock about it…he mentioned that several times he’d get a premium tool and the blade wouldnt hold an edge…Hock explained what had happened. Damned if i can find the blog post…he even said how to fix it, which if I remember correctly included grinding off the entire beveled edge and regrinding the bevel.
At any rate, I’d be damned if I’d pay for a ‘premium plane’ and then have to turn around and buy a premium blade for it. I agree with your response: Take it back, if the blade they replace it with does the same thing, take the whole thing back.
Of course, I’m not all that impressed by the Stanley company…seems like they are trying to bite into the market but still do it on the cheap. If I’m going to save and buy a plane, I’d be just as happy to save another month or two and get a Lie-Nielsen.
