So these planes have patchy reviews on the net but what’s there is generally positive.
The description on the manufacturers say the sole is machined flat and the sides square.
So what’s the catch? What is it I’m missing? Would this plane coupled with an upgraded iron perform like the noble Wood River?
Or if I ordered it, would I be disappointed? Like an iron ingot falling through my letterbox with `some assembly required` stamped on the side.
I mean, I know there’ll be no bedrock adjustment and I’m sure the cap iron & frog will need a good flatten, but really, compared to similar tools of the same price bracket (I’m thinking Silverline) that are just unusable – how does this plane come across so well?
