    IMHO a bronze LN #4 with an adjustable mouth, like a custom Veritas, would be the bees knees.

    Having said the that: Most my planes are Baileys.

    Wavy cuts

    A guy on my route has a smallish mill. He was showing me boards & they had hills and valleys.

    Any idea why the cuts are not smooth?
