    Brown stopped by

    And dropped off my new shoulder plane.

    I took it apart and cleaned it with mineral spirits and waxed all the surfaces before re-assembly, still need to adjust it out. Any recommended tutorials out there for this?

    Nice. I've been using mine over the past couple of days. I can't recommend a tutorial, though, since I haven't looked at one myself. The only tip I can offer is, like the instructions state, don't crank the set screws down too snugly. Set, then ease them off just a tad.

    What Brett said. I've had mine ever since they first came out. No tutorial necessary, just hone and use.

    It will soon get some use on a bed rail project for the grandson. I found a video or two on the setup of a shoulder plane, will do some experimenting.
