I have a Stanley Bailey no 7 that I restored. I use it to joint and the sole is dead flat. I started using it on my shooting board and noticed that my edges were slightly off from 90. It turns out that the sides of this plane are not an exact 90. My other bailey, a no 4 has perfect 90 degree sides.
I am wondering if you guys often encountered older planes with sides out of square. Is it a common thing to watch for or did I just get unlucky ?
Of course, ultimately I want to get a real miter plane like the one from lie-nielsen but its out of my budget for now.
