OK so I was wrong about something, I fiddled with the frog last night and I can get it pretty close to flush with the throat, maybe it isn’t close enough but I will let you all be the judge. Veritas sells these blades as fitting the stanleys, and it’s a real shame because I actually put the other blade on my No. 7 and it works like a dream. I have the original blades, but the one on my No. 7 wasn’t flat and at my skill level, I couldn’t get it properly sharp. 2 minutes of honing the veritas blade for the No. 7 and it worked like a charm cutting a 12degree angle into the end of a piece of birch plywood.

I’m posting the pics to get your opinions. One shows the frog all the way forward, the next all the way back. Then I have a pic of the gap with the blade, and another showing that the blade isn’t breaking the surface of the plane yet. Thanks for all the feedback and help.
