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 was surprised to read this comment. I think you’ll find quite a bit of disagreement here. I’ve got all kinds of fancy expensive smoothers but none of them really blow a well tuned Stanley #4 out of the water.
I certainly respect your opinion. I’m just wondering what you consider the finest smoother. If you’re talking about a scraper plane as the last smoothing step, then we’re definitely in agreement.
