First post here, just finished cleaning up a Stanley #7C (type 15) and had a question about the two screws/washers that attach the frog to the plane. How tight do they need to be? In the past, I've heaved them down pretty good, but I read somewhere that you could actually crack the screw housing if you got overzealous. While a torque value would be great, I was hoping y'all could give me some advice.
Great forum, by the way...I'm learning a lot, but might end up spending too much money fixing up these old planes. My wife's been giving me strange looks.
