Hotrod your LN #60 1/2 Block Plane

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). See: http://www.henryeckert.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=290_316

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.

Regards from Perth
