> The height-adjustment mechanism, although nice to have, is not really
necessary. My wooden router planes do not have a height-adjustment mechanism
other than a hammer and a wedge, and they work fine. A nice workaround to a
screw-driven height-adjustment mechanism is to use two router planes: one set
for the final depth and one to sneak up on that depth. Just another reason why a
Galoot needs more than one of each tool.

And don't forget that the one yuo have set at final depth makes a great marking
guage for anything that depth
