Several have said the scrub works faster. Is this because it is shorter and has a narrower iron? (I see that the veritas scrub has a very narrow iron) I’m going on the assumption that you can grind the same camber on either a scrub or a jack plane. Wouldn’t the Jack with a wider iron remove material faster?

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
