Topic tags/keywords: question plane

So I recently acquired a Stanley type 4 no 6 (if you can’t tell from my previous posts, I have a bit of a love affair with pre-laterals), and it arrived today. So I was disassembling it, and when I was working on the frog, I was going to take the depth adjuster knob out. About half way through, it stopped dead in its tracks, I tried to use oil to lubricate, still nothing. Eventually, to get it out, I had to use pliers (it didn’t scratch the brass too badly). My question is, is it rust? the depth adjuster yoke? The threads? no lubrication (already tried it though)? Please give your input on what this might be.

Rust wouldn’t help if it was present or the threads were boogered up.

Good to know, now that I have the adjuster out I should be able to take a closer look at it, or at the very least clean it.
