I can get nice shaving in the center of the blade but the lateral adjustment arm is almost 90% of the way to the left. Just seems odd.
I just can’t get the shaving very long. Seems very hard to push the plane. I almost always get chatter and the plane want to bounce it I don’t have the power to push through the stroke. But it seems very sharp. Also every stroke is leaving a line one the left sift side of the wood. I have a better stroke and cleaner finish but not smooth when going against the grain.

I can’t remember what kind of wood it is right now. I’m having a brain fart. Is a 8/4 live edge for a radiator cover for the many I am making for my in-laws.
