Howard Adjuster

Made in Adelaide.
Woodworker, teacher and author, Bob Howard invented these adjusters 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 Large & Medium Shoulder Planes. They are manufactured by CNC machinery in Adelaide, South Australia.
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.
