The scrub plane is Continental, Dutch or German not sure which. I haven’t seen anything published as to their use.

Flatten one face of your stock then make the second face parallel to it. From there try to remove equal amounts from each side while keeping an eye on potential movement. I suggest you get close then finish up in a couple days. If you take all the material from one side, you’ll likely end up with warped or cupped stock. I’m not sure of the length and width of stock you’re working with but the bigger it is the more care you need to take to control movement. If it does move some, you might want to give it time to equalize before continuing. I’ve even had material return to its intended flatness after moving a little.
