Hey, folks. I've been experimenting with a Stanley 55 and find that it seems to run downhill, as it were - meaning that the blade digs more deeply the farther you get into the run. Thus, if I'm beading the edge of a board, the blade bites only so far into the board as I begin pushing the plane and more deeply as I get to the end of it. Does anyone else experience this with a Stanley 55? Is this characteristic of the 55, or am I doing something wrong?
Also, the 55 is a fine tool but cranky. I'd like to master it, and if anyone can direct me to some good online resources, I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance! JVHovey
