  1. Does it work better than a wedge?

  2. On mine, the original screw post was a bit wobbly and the blade tended to move sideways a bit when I tightened it, so I carved a pad which distributes the pressure evenly. Later, I realized that the small projection at the rear is for adjusting with a hammer. 102’s were made when most woodworkers were still familiar with wooden planes. 103 doesn’t have that feature, but a clever lever adjustment instead.
