Left handed planes

joe in a Cleveland suburb
Hi all.

Just curious, are any of you left handed and using wooden beading planes?

I just bought a 3/16" beading plane from somebody on a FaceBook hand tools group pretty cheap.

I have been interested in trying one for some time and the price was right.
It seems all these old molding(?) planes are designed for right handed people.

I can do some things right handed, but not everything. If I can't get the hang of it, no big loss.

Any leftys have anything to say?

Thanks.
