I probably made up that “dog hole” thing. I’m talking about where the depth adjuster grabs the back of the iron. Of course, the iron needs to be bevel-up, meaning the slots down (If I’m insulting your intelligence, I don’t mean to). See the slots I’m calling dogholes below:

This probably the plane you have, right?

I don’t mean to insult your plane but I hope the Japanning is better than the one in the picture, lol. Again, I sent this plane back (full disclosure).

You’ve got to make sure that the depth adjuster “grabber” fits into the right “doghole” else it can’t protrude the blade properly. On a new iron, I’d expect you to have to draw the depth “grabber” back pretty far. I really need to learn the proper terminology. Good luck!
