this plane works great i just hate that u have to adjust it with a mallet/plane hammer but when u get it just right and i do mean just right and the blade is sharp u can the whispy shaveings your suposed to get as long as your not planeing reverse grain like on figured maple or a burl.

Nice plane. Who makes the kit? Does the hock blade and chipbreaker come with the kit?

i’m confused, how does it work? I don’t see a crosspin, what holds the blade in place? where does the cap screw sit, I don’t see a slot.

Looks like the blade is tightened with a bolt from the bottom and the chipbreaker is the nut.

I suspect that the screw tightens to the back of the blade. There is probably a recess in the wood behind the blade to accommodate the screw head. Fun to guess at it anyway.
