My antique router plane lacks the threaded adjustment of modern ones.

Hopefully this is not an “everybody knows that” but tapping on the top of the iron’s stem with a plane adjusting hammer enables me to increase the depth of cut in small increments. Since the thumbscrew is kept tight, “losing your place” isn’t a problem anymore.

thanks to the man with many vises for the ad-'vise'. And that is indeed a 'fine' tip!

If I could have (easily) found a used router plane I might have gone that route, but instead found a new one at LV - so at least until I acquire multiples, I'll have to keep this tip in my (faulty) memory bank.
