Derek Cohen (in Perth, Australia)
I spent the past weekend at the Perth Wood Show, and had a bit of fun demoing planing and sharpening for LN Australia. One of the bits I came away with was an adjuster modification by Bob Howard for the #60 1/2 (it may be used on some other LN planes as well).

Notice anything different?
Well, the adjuster mod uses a bearing ...
You can see the original adjuster alongside ..
The result is a much smoother adjustment of the blade.
