This will be returned to Lowes. Iron took way too longjust to get Flat….Edge square to the sides….edge sharp
A so-called chip breaker is the deal breaker
IF you set it within 1/64” of the iron’s edge, you will not get the edge to come through the sole to make a cut, the adjuster wheel will have run of of threads way before that. Chip breaker is way too thin. Tried several times to get it to even sit flat on the iron. Bends right back out. Even on some Tame Walnut, with the chipbreaker frshly set flat, all sorts of walnut junk lodged between them after a few strokes.
Most of the rest of this plane is too bad. Not sure if it would be worth the time and effort to get a new iron and chip breaker. Or, just take it back and get my money back…..
$30 for a handplane. i have bought a few #4s off ebay that costs less, and work like a real handplane should.
