I purchased a Lie Nielsen No. 4 1/2 plane and what I thought was 55 degrees high angle frog (HAF) on Ebay back in 2009 and haven’t used it that much favoring my No. 4 most of the time instead. So I thought I’d sell it on Ebay. However, when I looked at HAF box, I noticed it was stamped 45 degrees frog. I measured the angle of the frog on a flat surface at 34.9 degrees and the one in the plane the same way at 24.8 degrees. That’s ~10 degrees difference so I can assume I have 55 degrees HAF and the box was mismarked, right? Thanks
