I’ve watched all the videos and tried my best to get it sharp. So far, I had it actually cutting curly slivers for all of about 5 minutes, a few passes at best. The rest of the time it just digs in to a dead stop and leaves a big mark. The blade won’t stay parallel, and the adjustment knob takes 2-3 revolutions in either direction before it moves anything. I’ll keep trying, but I want to try another plane also. If I can’t get that one to work either, then I’ll know for sure its me.
