Anthony, Treat it as a test plane, fill the crack with glue, rubbing with your finger across the crack to pump it in, or use a vacuum to pull the glue in, let dry, and keep going. Your shavings will be better with a sharper chisel. The wedge ramp must be parallel to the bottom...and I find a straight ramp is easier than a curved ramp. Don't stop, this is only a short set back. All your effort is not in vain...it will still work.
Woodworking is like wetting myself....Only I know that warm feeling!
