Which way is the front? The area in front of the mouth MUST be in contact with the wood, i.e flat, to get perfect results. Otherwise the wood fibers will not be held down as the blade begins to lift and shear them. Still a good plane to use as is, but not for the finest smoothing, which a Stanley #4 isn’t great for fo begin with.

-- I restore the finest vintage tools! If you need a nice plane, saw, marking tool or brace, please let me know!
