I just purchased an old Dado plane, and was wondering if anyone had any tips for setting it up for effective use, Specifically:
1. How much should the blade protrude on either side of the wood?
2. How wide should the forked nickers be ground to in relation to the blade width? Exactly the same, or slightly wider?
3. Any other likely culprits of poor performance?
