I have had several planes with some degree of play at the heel of the tote. (One is a Sargent #4 and one a Stanley #4). I have tried several things to eliminate the play, none of them successful. I can tighten them, but they soon loosen up again. In some cases the movement is slight, in some a little more so. So is this common? Is there a cure?
Some of the “cures” I have tried are:
The only other option I can think of is to make a totally new tote, but then I’m not sure that would solve the problem either.
Does anyone have any suggestions based on your experiences with your own planes?
