Reply To: Why do we accept poor quality planes

Regarding the sweetheart planes. I also have the low angle jack and the smoother. On both of them, I have had problems with the knob. Specifically, the threaded insert comes loose, and the knob comes off, so be sure not to cinch it too tight when adjusting the mouth. I have not checked their soles for flatness.
