Wesley166 Hi This is an easy fix all you need is some masking tape. The nylon pad which clamps against shaft holding the cutters is too smooth to exert enough friction to lock the cutter in the desired position. If you stick a piece of masking tape in the groove of the nylon pad it will increase the friction and lock the cutter shaft. While we are talking mods to this plane, is the knurled locking knob to close to the plane body to operate easily? Mine was so I put two small washers between the nylon pad and the end of the locking knob shaft.

Q: Why a textured shaft? Isn't that going to cause more wear

BG492552502 HiTo answer your question the clamp is designed for MFT style benches which have a top made of MDF and is usually 18mm thick. The clamp works by being forced against the sides of the dog hole by the downward force exerted on the work piece. Because the hole is only 18mm deep and MDF is relatively soft a plain shaft would not have enough friction and would slip in the hole. The original carpenters hold fast had a plain shaft but usually was fitted into a hole 50 mm deep in a bench made from a hard timber. To answer the second part of your question, yes the textured shaft will cause some wear to the dog hole. This will occur at the top and bottom edges of the dog hole as the clamp is forced against the sides of the hole. Inserting and removing the clamp will also cause some wear as the shaft acts as a reamer. This will probably not be too detrimental to the operation of the dog hole. Hope this explains how these clamps work and why they are made this way.

BG492552502 Hi jochen My rails are Makita so I do not know the answer to your question. My answer to a similar question about the Lidl rails may be of help.
