    I bought one years ago expecting it to work out of the box.  So it sat for 10 years until I saw a YouTube video about setting up planes.  So I set the frog, honed the knife and set the cap iron to knife distance.  I never did get the backlash out of the depth adjustment.  You are not supposed to lower the depth (loosen the left handed screw) to use it.  But the knife wouldn’t stay set when I increased the depth.  It would back up after a couple passes.  So I wasted tons of time on scrap wood trying to get the depth set before usually it on an actual project.  I can put my Veritas plane away with the depth set to zero, increase the depth slowly on my work piece until it is cutting nice shavings, and off I go.

    If you have a convex base on your plane. Take it back. Concave you can fix.

    thats the wrong way to flatten the base of a plane. holding it in a vise distorts the plane and won’t flatten it when you lay it flat on the work surface…

    Start with 80, then 120, then 180, then 220

    For flattening, I recommend 80 grit on a granite or glass surface. That will do the primary flattening quickly. Then I halve the grit, and halve it again, which brings it close to reasonably smooth, as well as flat.

    you’re making it flat east to west, how do you know north to south is OK?

    New woodworkers need to hear that truth.

    i think you dont need wetstones to flatten the sole. a diamond stone with like 300 grit is more than enough. or the sandpaper to the flat surfice thingy
