Does anyone know whether in the western world the breaker ever had a substantial presence in planes without being held in place by a screw? That is part of where the rot creeps in. You make your decision on how to set the breaker before you can tune it in use, and it becomes needed for other things, like as the means of attaching the blade setting mechanism, independent of it having a function of it's own. It would make sense that at one time they were independent and could be adjusted separately, since that works super well in Japanese planes. Which as it happens we are told were inspired on their breakers by outside tools. Then when the mechanics took over people retained the idea they were there to break the shaving, and reduce tearout, but forgot to pay attention to it. Now we have the information back on that aspect.
