Transitional Plane Problem Solved

One piece of information I left out of the original topic was the length of the plane, it is 9″ and was listed as a smoother.  Well I took James and Mike’s advice and checked out the chip breaker distance from the blade edge.  I had it set as if I was doing one of my all metal Stanley planes.  I moved the chip breaker back and now the tab can engage the chip breaker/blade and be adjusted to cut wood.  I guess my mind was focused too much on the Stanley planes and adjusting the chip breaker on those.  Thanks to those that posted as it has made me just a little wiser with these hand tools.
