    I should have been clearer that what I said assumed accurately-manufactured examples of each configuration. If the base and frog are so badly machined that the frog can rock or is badly crooked, then all bets are off as David points out.

    The logic behind this statement becomes clearer once you realize that a plane is, at its core, nothing more than a chisel holder.

    I have a 7, and a 4 type 19. Both have the blue finish, and both work just fine.
