I have a Record 76 rabbet plane.
The plane is bevel side up, and the primary bevels as ground by the manufacturer appear to be 45° or close to it. (If I apply pressure to the bevel whilst bevel side down on a flat surface, the blade seems to "stand" at an angle half way between the surface and the vertical.
Rightly or wrongly, the blade has a secondary bevel ground onto to it. I am not sure of it's angle, but clearly it must be steeper than 45°.
The plane iron is sharp but when assembled it cuts rather terribly no matter how I adjust it. The blade doesn't want to "plane" but rather dig in and stall.
So what should I do? My gut says I should grind away at the primary bevel so that it becomes a single beveled iron cutting at 45°.
