Woodworker, teacher and author, Bob Howard invented this adjuster for use on Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Adjustable Mouth Block Planes, Skew Block Planes, Rabbet Block Plane, Chisel Plane, Low Angle Jack Plane & Low Angle Jointer and Large & Medium Shoulder Planes. It is manufactured by CNC 5 axis machinery in Australia for Henry Eckert.
It is designed to replace the factory adjuster. Made from billet brass its feature is a sealed bearing that avoids the adjuster from 'catching' the plane blade causing it to try, or in fact move, sideways. It removes all of the friction between the adjuster and the plane blade to give silky smooth effortless operation. The diameter of the knurled knob is increased to give more purchase and particularly, more precise fine blade adjustment.
We have been using them in our Woodwork School for a while now and they have proved to be a great improvement.
