You might find you won’t have to go through the trouble to thin the fence. It’s not often you need a rebate at full width.
There in a bit of a learning curve. Main points are : sharpen the plane dead flat – don’t ease or crown any edges.
The plane should protrude maybe the thickness of a business card with the grain.
Cross grain work that needs the nicker should have the iron aligned with it. Take a couple back strokes first so the nicker scores the cut line. And sharpen iron and nicker.
And I avoid spelching cross grain by removing wood down to depth at the end of the cut with a chisel
