    I have 101 as well, but my suggestion: Set a blade in to 0, tighten down the cap so you don’t need to touch it anymore. Than start to set a depth and the angle so that the blade is centered and cuts from both sides identically. Otherwise as soon as you will tighten the cam your plade will move and you will need to reset again.

    My 102 is completely different

    Nice find Marty! And also good demo on how to adjust the blade.

    What do you call the hammer you are using to make adjustments? How many ounces would you say it weighs? I’ve kept a 101 for years, love it! Thanks for the vid.

    Seems to work like wooden planes. Its an acquired skill, still learning to set them up better.

    Thanks for sharing this Marty. A little over a year ago I inherited from my dad a plane that looks like your #101 (even complete with a bit of rust on the screw like yours haha). However I can’t find any text or a number on it any where. Does the Stanley #101 have any markings?
