I picked up this wonderful 24″ wooden plane the other day. i was quite pleased with the condition, but going into it I knew the sole would need a little bit of work. When I lay it flat on a table, the plane rocks very slightly due to the twist.
I’m not sure what wood this is made from. It almost looks like Rosewood, but I didn’t know entire plane bodies would be made from that. The problem I am having is that no matter what direction I plane this I get really bad tear out. (Yes, my iron is sharp) I tried skewing my plane by 45* and micro bevels on my plane. I set the cap iron about 1/32 of an inch from the edge and I still get it. Does any one have any other tricks?
I plan on using this for jointing long (8 feet) boards. So I think it needs to be pretty flat and straight.
