It is definitely possible it’s not flat. Take a straight edge and from corner to corner ( like an x) you want coplanar. You need a line in the front, the back, and behind the mouth.. Then do the same thing along both edges.

I posted a video recently to go with the blog about straightening on timetestedtools.

That being said. I don’t think that is your problem. It really sounds like your technique to me.

Use your straight edge (or a sting) to determine when you get the dip. Maybe you just need to forgo that last full length shavings. If it’s flat before you start that, you win.
