Wrestling with some moulding planes here (is it molding or moulding or both? I have a 1/2″ rabbet moulding plane and when I look down the length of the plane the iron sticks up on one side more than the other. This causes a rabbet that is sloped to the outer edge of the wood. I have tried to right it using the wedge but it keeps slipping to the left. Taking the iron out of the plane the edge does favor being higher on one side than the other. Since I am not that familiar with moulding planes yet I have hesitated to do the obvious and regrind the iron edge to be straight across and then resharpened. I cannot think of any reason for the edge of the iron to be higher on one side than the other, other than the owner of the plane before me would have made it this way for what ever reason. I have seen planes that are skewed across the edge to cut smoother, but this is not the case with this plane. Any thoughts out there?
