I read Paul Seller’s post and used the oil method to lube the sole of the plane. I have to say, I am SHOCKED at the difference it made. The plane went from feeling like a Krenov jack plane to feeling as nimble and connected to the wood as my Krenov smoother. As for the chattering, it’s still not to the point of silence, but I think with some practice and taking the advice about isolating the blade, it could very easily get there. As for the cut, the undulations have almost entirely disappeared. They are now so small that you can’t see them, though you can feel them to the touch.

I have to say, the difference is pretty shocking. Thanks for the input guys! I didn’t even know about that thread.
