New to this site, but need some help. I have a Stanley type 20, #4 smoothing plane (I think). It is 9 3/4″ long and uses a 2″ iron. According to all info I can get, it is a type 20. The problem is that the frog does not sit down tight in the body of the plane where it meets the throat of plane. It sits solid where the screws attach, but each leg lacks 1/8″ of reaching down to the body. Seems like that would be weak and cause chatter. I would send a picture, but cant seem to find where it states the size allowed. I tried to upload a 900 kb file, but it said it was too long. Not sure what that was referring to. Any body that can help I sure would appreciate it.
