Hand Plane Depth of Cut Screw(not the brass wheel) Came Off

Hi all, newbie here. Iíve recently acquired a Record no7 plane. When cleaning it I noticed that the depth of cut adjustment screw was a bit loose gave it a few twists and it came off. There are threads in the frog for it so I assume this was designed to be so. I have never come across something like this, I always assumed these were somehow embedded permanently in there. Any thoughts?

Correct, yours does unscrew. Simply screw it back on.

Interesting. How do you tighten the bolt to prevent it from unscrewing?
I havenít used the plane yet(wee problem with a broken handle screw stuck in the body) but it seems rather troublesome. Maybe epoxy it in place?

you either have ....

You may have a "stud" rather than a screw OR you may have a one piece threaded screw. You'll have to figure out which it is. If the knurled portion unscrews from the threaded portion then it's a stud. It may not and you have a one piece adjustment screw. Either way it will work OK.

If you wrap the threaded portion with a piece of leather and squeeze it a vise that should hold it while you attempt to unscrew the knurled portion. You don't want to damage the threads.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Yes, technically it's a stud or a threaded rod. I just want to know if anyone have one of these and how to deal with this situation. The way I see it the bolt/screw will want to move together with the brass wheel and also it kinda wiggles

remove any oil in the hole and on the threads and
apply a drop of Thread Locker.

Have had the same issue. Threadlocker worked great.

Glad I saw this. I have a Dunlap plane that has the same design. It's really bothersome. Is there a reason it's designed with a threaded stud? Is there an adjustment so that it won't unscrew (i.e., not have to use Loctite?)

Use blue loctite. simple and causes no problems. DO NOT use the red, it needs a blow torch to remove it.

Well I just did what @woodnthings suggested - wrapped the threads with leather and used pliers to tighten the bolt. Seems to do the job without damaging the threads. Will see if it loosens up while in use - if it does then I'll use threadlocker.
