Tune Up a New Plane
Whether you choose a low-angle or standard plane, an initial tune-up makes all the difference.
Chris Gochnour, Salt Lake City custom furniture maker and woodworking instructor, recommends following a sensible order of refinements each time you tune up a plane. Begin with the sole and then progress to the bed, the lever cap, and finally the blade. In this video he demonstrates the methods for making a new plane work with precision.
