After watching Paul’s instruction on plane restoration I have restored a Stanley 4 1/2 plane. It is looking great and cuts beautifully, better than any plane that I have used before. It was in poor condition even though I don’t think it has been used much, it has come up like new. My problem is that after reassembly I am unable to back off the iron completely. When the iron is right back it still protrudes from the sole by a couple of mm. Any ideas what I have done wrong please?
