..The wise George Wilson often says to me "if you don't know why something is the way that it is, you should copy it until you find out".

Not casting stones at your situation, who would know?

I see a lot of wooden planes made with bench plane irons in them, and I've made some duds in the ...I don't know...60 or so planes that I've made over the years.

It took me longer than most to learn that getting exactly what is in something else until you know otherwise (which would be the pre-internet "in absence of detailed information" method) is the way to go. That sounds more obscure than I intended, but can be translated to no deviation, no information needed. I thought I might chance into something good sooner or later, but it never happened, and lots of folks on the internet are always ready to show you the planes that they made but really don't use without telling you that they really don't use them much because they're not that great.

(Insert Krenov plane joke here, and the comment that everyone says about Jim Krenov having an updated more educated opinion than hundreds of thousands of long dead professionals about things like irons that will still be adjustable after an inch is used, or ....handles).
