Question

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I am struggling with whether LN is selling planes whose specification make it risky to purchase a plane from them because at the limit you are claiming the plane will not work to joint an edge, and who knows what else. But on to the question....

If the plane is concave by the limit of their spec , 0.0015, and the blade is set for a 0.002" shaving, which seems a reasonable shaving thickness if the objective is to level an edge, will the plane take a shaving of some thickness the full length of a 3' long board? The question begs a simple yes, no answer.

Another question, has anyone looked at a feeler gauge and seen what 0.0015" looks like. No response desired to this one.
