@thefridge Well I’m not sure. The adjusting screw is definitely at its limit. I think I have a little space left for the frog to slide forward re: the top tightening screws. Is there another shorter screw I can buy? or one that allows more adjustment?

@BlasterStumps I can post another pic tonight, but essentially as soon as the blade is far down enough to clear the mouth, it’s also forward of the front edge of the mouth, and the gap between blade/front of mouth is so small that the little bit of wood that gets scraped from the blade gets stuck in the mouth gap.

I can post more pictures tonight.
