Regarding the Mujingfang smoother, mine required tuning – smoothing the blade bed and wedge to stop chatter, trimming for chip discharge, sole flattening, works great once tuned. Does require a little sole flattening every once in a while, but just a few strokes on sandpaper.

Thanks for the info. On a side note, related to Mujingfang, I picked up the 3/4” rebate plane from Woodcraft on clearance. First time owning a full size plane from them (I have a few miniature ebony detail planes). Haven’t had a chance to use it yet, but I’m pretty impressed with what I see, especially for $49… I’m sure it will need some tuning, but it looks good out of the box. I’ve read the HSS blades they use are tough, so I’ll give it a go on the Sigma Power waterstones later and see how it turns out.
