Topic tags/keywords: question plane

Hey everybody,
I have a type 7B Stanley 45 and I was wondering if the knob comes off on this type of plane. I know that the earlier models had a rod and a nut but this one doesn’t and it seems to be fixed to the fence of the plane. Are the knobs supposed to be fixed or do I just need to put some muscle into it?

Have you got a Stanley #110 block plane handy? If so, remove that knob. You will see the “boss” that knob sits on is threaded.

Unless there is a real NEED to remove the 45’s knob…..I’d leave it be. Way too easy to strip the threads on the inside of that knob. Then it will be a bear to keep on the plane later.

Thanks for the info. I tried really hard to get it off when I first got it but after a few try’s with a lot of muscle into it I was afraid I was doing damage so I just tightened as snug as I could. I guess I didn’t damage it, because it sits just fine but I sure won’t be trying to take it off again!
