Matt, it was just my impression that the plane in question was out by a great deal. The plane is in hand so, sure, go ahead and try. There is a corresponding slippery slope related to frustration and uncertainty. Looking over my learning experience, I think I wasted a lot of time trying to save old tools that weren’t worth saving, especially saws and chisels, but also a few planes. (To be clear: This plane is probably perfectly fine for lots of other work. As you say, it might even work for shooting, even if it isn’t the plane I would choose for that task.)
