The shoulder plane came in yesterday and my son just brought it over.  I've been down in the shop to do a quick ovolo to check out the plane.  
It is just fabulous! Using it for the pre-moulding plane cuts, it works better than a rebate because the lack of extension of the blade beyond the sides of
the mouth completely eliminate any chance of marring the adjacent surface. And unlike my Record shoulder plane, it doesn't weigh a ton and so is a real
pleasure to use. The fineness of the mouth puts the Record to shame! And as with the rest of your planes, it is the most easily adjustable plane with a wedge
that I have ever used.
As another quick note on the shoulder plane:  As I indicated, I have been using it in lieu of a rebate plane for creating the rebates and tracks needed for the
moulding planes to follow.  One thing I didn’t notice right away is that, unlike a traditional shoulder plane (like the Record or Stanley versions or any version with a traditional design), your shoulder plane NEVER clogs the escapement, but beautifully spits out the chips.  As you may know, traditional shoulder planes are difficult to use in lieu of a rebate because they tend to clog the escapement.  Bottom line:  I’ve decided to give up on rebate planes, and will in due course be adding different widths of your should planes to my tool kit.
I'm in heaven! Thanks. Ed Einowski
