The Stanleys have a hole for the adjuster pivot
pin. You’ll never find a Sargent adjuster but you
may be able to fit a threaded knob to the hole
and adjust it. The Stanley adjuster is a stamped
steel thing. The Sargent adjuster is a cast bronze
thing. Be grateful you have the sole plate.

FYI, I bought my Craftsman for $5 on ebay. I knew
I wanted a knuckle cap and this style isn’t as
popular as the Stanley style. There are reasons
for that you’d discover if you used both but if you
never tried the Stanley you wouldn’t have complaints
about the Sargent.

I’m not an expert. I’m just looking at the pictures and
it’s jogging my memory.
