Hand plan deflection

Hey team -

Was fidgeting with one of my CL hand planes and noticed that the chip breaker and blade were not sitting flush. Upon further investigation, it appears the blade and breaker have some deflection in it. Most like due to the knob that connects them being over tightened.

Anyone have any experience with this and are there any recommendations remediation?

Thanks in advance -

Johnny

You guys are making me think I am making this up lol. Hopefully I explained myself properly.

I know one fix would be to replace the set with a Hock replacement but just one of those cost more than several of the planes combined so I am hoping to find a cost saving method of repair.

Help!!

Regrind the chip breaker so it's flush when tightened.

Thanks Maylar.

I tried regrinding, but the problem seems to be a little twist in both the blade and breaker as well. I am figuring this is a lost cause but is there in suggestions on how to get them back relatively straight/flat condition?

Just keep bending, flexing them straight. You will need to bend beyond straight and let spring back. Do one at a time. I typically put them in a vice for this type of fix.

Thanks T3. I was going that route but wasn't sure if I was barking up the wrong tree.

You every have one snap on you?
