Some things go without saying but go better saying.
The devil is in the details.
It is about vibration, chatter, scudding…

If we were not in January, I would say it is the best video of the year.

Maybe I should have chosen another title

Good video. Interestingly, the first plane I ever bought was a Buck Brothers jack plane for about $25 at Home Depot, maybe 20+ years ago. It worked so bad, scuddering any wood I used it on. I stuck it in a drawer for 20ish years. After watching some of Pauls vids on plane restoring, I inspected and found that the iron wasn’t sitting flat on the frog s o was vibrating like crazy, I took it apart and found that the frog wasn’t seating properly to the sole AND it wasn’t flat on the surface that mates to the iron. I scraped off the paint, filed all the mating surfaces best I could, drilled out the rivet on the lateral adjuster, flattened the frog, and reassembled it and now it works well. So vibration is bad, not just tool to wood, but internal to the tool as well.

The important message is that we need to understand the feedback we receive from our tools, the wood, and the process we’re attempting. Is this the way it’s supposed to work? why not?
