Okay, I’ve gotta admit I’ve not even been paying attention to my own planes… or does itt mean I simply have too many of ‘em? Nahhh!!! So I went to get my 78s out, and lo and behold: Yes, height adjusting levers DO exist on some of these planes! I misspoke about this earlier. Photobucket On the left, a Stanley 78, with a height adjuster on the rear cutter bed! Next to it, a couple of ‘USA’ 78s probably knockoffs, both with spur cutters. Note the ‘horn’ on one of ‘em. And, in picture #2: Photobucket A Sears Craftsman 78 in the box, with a height adjuster lever and circular scribe cutter! Alas, no horn! I think I have more, but probably in my future garage-sale stash outside. Thanks for looking, and all of the great comments! I remember now, not being able to combine the best of the best into one custom 78 that had all features. I like having a horn on front, lever height adjuster, filled handle, etc. Definitely going to check out that panel-raising post as Mauricio suggested. Keep the comments coming, and thanks everyone!
