Stumpy suggested I ask the LJ’s for help in identifying and locating parts for my Dad’s #6 no name plane.

Attempted to upload pictures on previous forum entry. Fixes are simple if you know wht buttons to push!

doesn’t adjust very easily and the screw is chewed up in the slot. Want to replace as much as I can to improve blade movement.

The shiny brass knob tells us someone has already started cleaning or at least messing with the plane.
Is it hard to adjust because the lever cap is on tight? How easy is it to adjust the blade forward/back with it off completely? What screw is chewed up in what slot?

As for ID – no markings on the cutter? Any numbers or letters underneath the lever cap, or under the frog?

I can’t tell, it’s a bit dark – does it have a lateral adjustment lever?

Are there any markings in the middle of the chipbreaker?

EDIT: Are there any markings inside that newly shined brass adjustment knob?

What Joe said and

A picture of the lateral, frog and frog base may give some clues as well.

doesn’t adjust very easily
Sometimes just a good wire wheelin will take care of this.

And some light restoration reading if you’re bored.

I made an assumption with my last post. If the cap and cutter is off, does the adjustment turn any easier? If so, you may just have the cap to tight

Also a adding a bit of 3in1 oil to the adjustments and the face of the frog can sometimes act like magic. I didn’t do this for years but after I tried it out I went though my whole stable and did all my planes. Another place to add oil in on the rod that holds the yoke to the frog.

I don’t know that it has been established that you need any new parts yet. Maybe a new screw for the lever cap? With the pane taken apart, cleaned, lubed and pics taken you will get the needed info as far as ID, needed parts, if any, and how to spruce it up. We still need a better look at it, probably disassembled.

Why are you yelling at me? Did I say something to piss you off, or do you think that just because I’m old I’m hard of hearing?

Know the screw slot is messed up from a bad screwdriver. And aren’t those left handed threads?
