"I don't recall even being taught how to use a simple block plane in high school wood shop some 40 years ago."
Uh-oh. Is there a right way to hold and use a block plane too?
BTW, I had a semester of HS wood shop in the mid-1960s. My first experience of woodworking tools. I barely passed with a D. If my old shop teacher had known that I would go on to try and make a living at woodworking he would be surprised I hadn't starved to death.
I need to take some pictures. Infill shoulder planes have ears to make it easy to grab the tool at each end. With Preston style planes it is a little harder.
No idea - other than to cover the mechanism. And sometimes you do push a shoulder plane.
