I use a LN 5 1/2 for my shooting board, which seems to be sized perfectly for this application. The shoe does not necessarily need to be true 90. By using the lateral adjustment for the blade you can fine tune your cut so it is perfect. Quite honestly even the best of planes or purpose built planes require a little adjustment. Try it and you may find what you have will work. Good luck.
