None of us are as dumb as all of us

That title is not appropriate for this post, but I think it’s a funny saying.

Yesterday Marilyn in Seattle posted about having some difficulty with her plow plane, but after getting it set up and learning how use it, she really enjoyed it. A couple of years ago, I had a similar experience. In fact I got so frustrated with it that I nearly returned it. That is until I noticed it wasn’t quite set up correctly.

Have a look at Marilyn’s plow working correctly.

Now see if you can figure what I’d done wrong.

I guess I’ll be proudly sporting the dunce cap a little longer.

My plow plane is one of my go to planes now that I figured it out.
