You have just converted your jack plane to a- – – – – – – – – ta-da, a jack plane. Congratu-freaking-lations.

Wow. Easy, buddy.

I would like to note that metal-bodied jack planes are definitely not built as scrub planes in the last century or so. The mouth opening isn’t nearly as big, even though most jacks are supposed to be able to remove stock quickly. To make a jack plane perform like a scrub plane, usually takes some adjustments.
