I wanted to pose a question that I am struggling to find an answer too. I recently purchased a Stanley No. 6 Type 11 plane and it’s in great shape, with the exception of the frog. I noticed that when I place a plane iron against the frog, that the iron rocks back and forth as if the frog is out of wind. I have removed the frog and confirmed with an accurate straight edge that it is indeed out of wind.
So my question to you all. Is it critical that the frog be perfectly bedded to the blade?
I own many other Stanley planes and own many Lie-Nielsen planes and have never ran across this issue.
I really appreciate all your feedback and help.
