Never a problem my friend. 😉 I hope my offerings help resolve the problem, but sight unseen it can sometimes be difficult to identify an exact cause.
Another possibility that can affect the feel of a plane and cause problems achieving adequate shavings can be if there’s residual burr on a cutting edge. The presence of the slightest burr can often make a vast difference in the quality of cut and potentially make it appear as though there’s a fault with the plane/chisel. A few more swipes on the extra fine plate, before wiping the flat of the blade on the plate, then stropping should help if it is a cause.
