So trying to elimanate the error variable it dawned on me i could “sled” the plane ,which would do a few things to help with accuracy, 1~ ensure that the plane tracked true to square (yea i squared the side to the soul, took about 1 hr)
By capturing the sled with the lap rabbit i woodn’t have to think about pushing in at an angle as well as pushing past the stock
2~ i could set the plane off just a bit with a rub strip ,keeping the blade from cutting into the inclined board and the fence , this over time wood affect the squareness as the plane contacted the decreasing base.
3~ hopefully make it a constant result once accurate, meaning all that wood need to be adjusted is the depth of cut
4~Along with raising the cutter up about 1/2” allowing me to use all the blade width (increasing the thickness of stock that can be planed to almost 2 “) dead blade now is only about 1/8 th. [(:{>

Nice looking shooting plane.

I am not a big hand tool person so please forgive this question but why the angle on the base that you hold the wood against?

thanks Guys, woodnsawdust,~ the incline helps when shooting the end as it helps to push the stock against the fence using the pressure pushing against it ,as well as squewing the angle the blade contacts the wood making the cut easier
hope that helps
