I am new here but and am please to be here. I have a question about my Stanley handplane #50. I got it from a antique shop near me. Lucky for me all the cutters were included. My problem is that my tongue and groove cutter are off. I mean the right cutter is fraction longer that that of the left side. You arn’t see it with your eyes but planing it on wood you immediately sees it. The right cutter is doing the job while the left one does nothing but the skate is sliding on the surface. I tried to adjust it but there is noway to adjust unless to reshape the cutters by sharping more on the left to get it level. I do have a horning jig but then it so difficult to align it in the jig. I don’t want to grind and waste the cutter as I contacted serveral companies for sush cutter but was told that these cutters were not made any longer. So I am trying to be careful not the mess up the cutter. Is there a way to a accurancy sharpen it?
