Tim, That's kind of what I thought. I'm pretty new to handplanes. I mean, sure I've got a couple and I use them for the common uses, trimming, chamfering, but nothing serious.
I kind of just bought this plane on a whim, thinking it'd be nice to have a big snow show. If I was really going to joint something, I'd most likely use my powered jointer.
But now that I've got it, and I see how it was setup, I'm wondering if somebody didn't use it as a big long smoother?
I'll have to see how I want to use it, but it sure is a big ole son of a gun..
