Are you sure about that? When I was shapping the spinner backplate block off plates, I used two 1x2 boards clamped on to the blade and pulled them into the coarse position. It is just a spring holding them in the fine position, albeit a pretty strong spring. Was trying to do it by hand without the boards and couldn't so called Hartzel and they laughed and said you need the boards for leverage and was the typical method for achieving what I was doing.

Can't speak to the WW, but expect the same.
