Hey and a big thanks to all who help! So I got My first hand plane and have been trying to get a good edge on it using a jig I bought and sandpaper. I marked along the edge with a marker then filed away on a 25 degree angle. Finally a couple hrs later on the 220 grit I got the mark scrubbed all the way off across the blade. When I toolkit out of the jig and looked at the edge I noticed it looked like it wasn't square so I put it all together and had to push the adjustment bar all the way over and it still is sticking up higher alittle on one side. I'm not sure what the problem is so please help! I really like this by hand idea and wow is it smooth! Oh, it's a stanley no5 old school model, thanks!
