For today’s episode we have a question from a listener regarding how to adjust the blade of a wooden bodied plane. As I had discussed earlier, wooden bodied planes don’t have mechanical adjusters like their metal-bodied cousins. But adjusting them is practically just as easy. All it takes for quick adjustments is a small hammer and a light touch! Thanks to Dan Barrett for helping me to understand the hows and whys during our discussion at Woodworking in America at St. Charles this past year.Don’t forget to enter for free Schwag and please support our sponsors by visiting their links here on the website.
