Re: Hand Plane metal repair questions

Bruce, a MN Galoot
A rear corner of a block plane doesn’t mean much, actually, unless it’s gouging your work, leave it alone. I’m sure mine is out by that much, and it’s been doing good work for 70+ years.

As far as the pin being missing, it’s not really necessary to move the adjustable throat, so do what you want. I might JB it into place.
