    Rockler makes a customizable branding iron. They are in US.
    They make a plug in version that takes a long time to heat up for hardwood.

    Hope that helps.

    ehisey,

    Thanks for that tip…in fact I did not have the blade and cap iron installed while I was flattening. Installing those made a big difference. I was able to get the rear of the throat flat fairly quickly and I’m still working on the front of the throat. I’m almost there.

    It is every time BUT it’s only one board. And it’s a very rough piece of white oak. The grain seems to go in lots of directions so I think that is my problem. Thanks to your comment I looked closer at the board and I now know what to look for.

    Thanks Matt,
    I have been using the plane. So far it does well on scrap soft wood (pine). Still experimenting with hardwoods. I’m seeing slight tear out at the front end of larger pieces. I’m now thinking it’s my technique and not the plane.
