Subject:
Krenov style plane jams

Jim Matthews
I'm working through my "someday" projects.

I picked up a half finished kit and started fitting the blade, cap iron and wedge.

I have successfully flattened and squared the sole. I can take a full width shaving and adjust thickness.

The shaving does not eject, and jams. It folds up like the corrugated layer of cardboard.
This happens even with thd cap iron retracted.

Before I excavate more material, what ard the obvious adjustments I should make.
