Rob Cosman's Plane AdjuSTAR - Lie Nielsen Version
Do you find that using your plane's adjusting knob is a bit difficult? Well we did and decided to fix that by creating our Plane AdjuSTAR adjusting knob to replace the original adjusting knob on most Lie Nielsen bench planes.
Our Plane AdjuSTAR is larger and much easier to use than the original adjusting knob allowing you to make adjustments to your blade depth setting easily. Our design makes it easier for you to reach and turn the adjuster with your fingers and easier for you to reach the frog adjustment screw with a screwdriver. We know you will love our Plane AdjuSTAR.
- The Lie-Nielsen version fits Lie-Nielsen bench planes numbers 4-1/2, 5, 5-1/2, 6, 7, and 8. (WILL NOT fit number 1, 3, or 4, or 5-1/4).
- Requires removal of handle to install (see installation video).
- 1-7/8 inch outside diameter.
These Adjustar's work fantastic! This is my fourth one... I have them on all my Woodriver planes and this one I put on my newly purchased LN #8.
This piece has allowed me to make adjustments to my plane with one hand , and, 'on the fly'. I could not do either of those things with the standard knurled knob.
I like it, works well.
Without a doubt the best $40 investment I have made in a long time. It makes you wonder why it took so long to come up with the idea. Cleaner access to the Frog Adjuster Screw. Ease of adjusting the blade is on a completely different level. If you have made it this far and you are reading the review then stop procrastinating and hit the “Add to Cart” button. Start enjoying the upgrade.
Much easier adjustment, and, in particular, the knob now isn't in the way of the frog adjustment screws. Very pleased.
