I’m rehabbing a Stanley No. 10 1/2 with an adjustable mouth. The mouth casting is tapped to accept the standard 12-20 sized threaded rod but it is also the typically sloppy fit. The iron washer is tapped the same but a bit tighter.
I don’t know how much I’ll move the toe but I’m concerned that so much play in the fit (together with only using a few threads) will put a lot of stress on that casting. Since this unit won’t be inducted into the Plane Museum, I’m inclined to chase it with a 1/4-20 or 28 tap and use more conventional hardware.
If anyone has a better idea, I’d like to hear it. Thanks, Skip
