Topic tags/keywords: plane 5 stanley threads

I was using my #5 Stanley and the rear handle was loose, I gave it a quarter turn and it was tight for a few swipes and loosened up again. Now the threads jump and it can not hold the handle in place at all.

Is there a common solution to this? I was thinking of getting a local welder to braze it into place but that seemed a little to extreme.

I’d try a hardwood shim or even JB Weld before brazing.

Second vote for JB weld. Or you can use Loktite the version that makes a permanent bond.

loctite form a thread or a replacement insert. Usually the replacement insert involves drilling, tapping, and installing the new insert.
