Well, I spent all my extra tool money this month on some old planes at antiques shops. So I super glued the brass pieces on the head side, filed them down flush, sanded both sides flat and coplanar, finish sanded the whole thing, a couple coats of BLO, and buffed with some steel wool, and it is actually a decent tool now. I think the BLO helps it lock into position a bit better than before.
