Removing The Blade: To remove the blade from the 074 plane, first of all the lever cap must be removed. The lever cap is removed by firstly loosening the securing wheel/screw on the underside of the lever cap then once loosened the lever cap can be lifted out from the plane. The blade can now be moved/removed.

To replace the blade the above process is reversed; care should be taken to ensure the blade is carefully placed in position to ensure no damage/dulling occurs to the edge of the blade.

When placing the blade into the plane the bevel side of the cutter goes upwards, at the same time the hole at the top of the blade locates with the fine adjustment adjuster milled nut; this allows the fine adjuster to move the blade.
