Hi James,

I have never had one come apart like that. The pin is normally attached to the adjustment lever by just inserting the rod and pinging the head into a mushroom. I see no reason why you couldn’t tap for a small screw since you are just looking at user tools. The adjuster is so thin that you would probably be better off tapping the body of the plane. Before that I would try and find a replacement, complete adjuster.

Have fun
