Hi Gary and Gregory,

I’m beginning to think that the no.4 I have is a bit of a clonker.  It took me absolutely ages and buckets of sweat to get the sole flat. I can probably get the side wing square with a bit of work.  Still the effort to ‘fettle’ it is teaching me stuff along the way which I will find a use for in the future I’m sure.

I think the no.5 might be the way to go, although I might well have to find some way of distracting SWMBO whilst I get it in the house.  I already have a combination (#50) and a Narex chisel….oh, and a mallet….en route, so I’m going to have to set up some diversionary tactics.
