I just purchased a 50 made in 1949. Its in excellent condition except for 1 thing. The skate that slides on the 2 guide bars is not in alignment relative to the skate on the main body which is causing 3 issues.
1. The sliding skate sits about 1/16 lower the main body skate.
2. The sliding skate is also about 1/16 ahead of the main body.
3. The bed where the blade is supposed to rest is also about 1/16 off from the main body.
The result of all of this skews the blade when mounted in the plane. Anyone ever see this problem before?
I can post pics if that would help. It seems like the only solution would be to file the skate bed down which I really don’t want to do.
