619.37421-123117-2 Craftsman 4 way (Sargent made)
Craftsman Number 619.37421
With the 4 way bade
The biggest drawback I see is the 4 way blade doesn’t allow for the chip breaker to be adjusted for the distance to the end of the blade. So there is no setting of the chip breaker and as the blade is sharpened the distance decreases.
I also do not like the looks or the feel of the plastic knob and tote.
Even tuned and sharpened I don’t see this ever being a decent smoother. Replacing the cutter however would rectify that and turn this into a very usable plane
The sole took a substantial amount of work
