Flatten a twisted smoother https://imgur.com/gallery/VRtzNnq
This is a marples 4.5 that I got from England. They dont cost much of a premium over there.
It's got super hard castings, a lot of twist, and the cap iron didn't feed well. It turned out to have nearly a 90 degree wall filed or honed into the face.
Works great now. The twist made it inconsistent on a flat surface.
