Adjusting Stanley Low-Angle Block Plane No. 60-1/2
I am trying to adjust my Stanley - Low-Angle Block Plane No. 60-1/2, after grinding and honing its blade. The blade moves forward/backward through its mouth via a depth adjustment knob at the back of the plane. The knob has a very limited range. A second part of the adjustment involves three slots on the blade. One of these three slots is engaged, followed by a tightening of the lever cap.
Unfortunately, using any of these three slots and the very limited range of the depth adjustment knob, results in the blade extending too far below the sole of the plane or not extending at all.
