I purchases a PL1682 Bosch electric hand planner. When the dial is set to zero, it is still cutting into the surface.

When I moving a straight edge from front to rear across the base, I find the front plate (at zero) is at the same plane as the blades. BUT when doing the same from the back plate (which does not appear to be adjustable) to the front plate, I find the back plate is lower than the blades. The straight edge actual turns the cutting head and the straight edge hits the back portion of the front plate.

I would expect that at zero one could run a straight edge front to back, back to front and not touch the blade. I would further suspect that the blades and the back plate should be at the same plane at all times and that only the adjustable front plate should ever go lower than the blade. Am I correct??

Is there any way to adjust the back plate or the blades so that they are on the same plane?
