Thanks Elaine! I’m an idiot! it was right there the whole time. I even got that in a print form with the plane and even read it and didn’t think twice! Wow , huh. I had been over tightening the blade. Only takes a quarter turn to loosen. As far as making fine adjustments i think I’ll steer away from tapping the side with a metal hammer even if it is brass. Maybe a wood hammer or something similar? Hmm…. I did take a hair extra off the sides of the blade and that helps to not get stuck and not have the noticeable lines either.
Thanks for the tips!
