Oct 6 '21 at 15:20 comment added Graphus If you do want a more permanent fix then it is to hone the iron appropriately, i.e. take material off the corner that's currently too low. Some users do this a little at a time over a number of honings until the edge is back to square, some choose to do it all at once and be done with it. Choose as suits your patience level and current sharpening equipment. *** BTW all this is assuming the frog is set correctly, completely parallel to the rear of the mouth. Be sure to check that first! If it's rotated just a tiny amount this is also how one corner of the iron can project more.***
Oct 6 '21 at 15:17 comment added Graphus It was only the second half of that Answer I wanted to point to. Shimming was only necessary in that case because of a rare fault in that user's frog; v unlikely yours is like that too. I know it might seem a little intimidating — after all there's so much else you have to pay attention to, all of which you're currently unfamiliar with — but you must learn to use the lateral anyway, right now, and it's no more likely to shift from position if set a little right or left of centre than it is if set closer to dead centre, if your plane is set up properly (lever-cap screw adjusted right). [contd]
Oct 6 '21 at 7:00 comment added Graphus Hi, welcome to Woodworking and congrats on starting your hand-plane journey! Since you are a beginner are you aware of how 5s are generally set up i.e. what tasks they are set up to do? You can use a 5 essentially as a long-bed smoothing plane, but they are at their best either for A, coarse work (roughing jacks as they're called in the UK) or B, as a general do-many-things plane (jack of all trades). In either case you're going to want to at least knock the corners off that iron! Ideally with a jack you want the edge to be cambered (AKA radiused), and for a roughing jack quite noticeably.
