Handplane Restoration Stanley #5C Sweetheart -Finished-
OK, you know the lateral adjuster on the frog of a Stanley-Bailey plane, well I want to lap the frog where the blade lays against it, but the little round knob on the lateral adjuster is in the way, of course, as it fits into the hole in the blade. The lateral adjuster is held in place by a pin that is peened over on both sides. Should I just file off one side and tap it out, then replace the pin, or.....
The item I'm pointing to in the diagram.
This is on the Stanley-Bailey #5C that I got a while back.
