Have to watch out when going to those thicker irons AND chipbreakers…...not so much the fit at the mouth opening (it won t, so you file away metal) it lies in that little, worn down a bit tab, at the end of the yoke. The tab that is supposed to make the adjustments for depth. Sometimes, the tab is just plain too short to go through the thicker iron and then engage the chipbreakers slot. Or, it it does by chance reach that for….it a change in depth is great enough, the tab will just drop out of the slot.
Just a heads up…..

Yeah, I have had some really worn tabs on frogs. I am wondering out loud IF one could actually use a bit of JB-Weld to build the tab up? And wonder IF that would be strong enough to actually work…? Hmm…
