I agree with you Dennis, so the thing I would do to counteract that is to make sure my blade is parallel and in the case of my smoother it’s slightly cambered on the edges so it won’t happen. I use a #7 corrugated sole for my jointing and the blade is wider than most boards I joint so no problem.
Isn’t if fun opening a can of worms with a question on the forum!
By the way, I recall that you’re from Denmark and I recently was given a couple of wooden bodied planes from Sweden. The blade is stamped Erik Anton Berg and has a fish on it. the body of the plane has an oval, metal tag stamped EGYL and a paper tag that says JPBO Quality Tools. Any chance you can tell me anything about them? I have a smoother and a sliding dovetail style. Appreciate it.
