Finally I got a new veritas router plane (had to wait a month, not too bad). I never used a “real” router plane before, so this could be due to lack of experience, but I find the base compresses the surface fibres leaving shiny patches on the surface of even oak and maple, not to speak of pine.
Wonder whether I’m I putting too much pressure or this normal. Would a wooden base make a big difference? Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.
