Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase: Fuhrungsgriff, Tiefeneinstellung, Festellschraube, Einschaltsperre,
UK English - I need somebody who knows planers, the names of the knobs on it, etc.
Re: Electric Planer
There is a diagram of the planer: the knob that adjusts the cutting depth has an arrow pointed at it, and then
Fuhrungsgriff
Tiefeneinstellung
(one below the other)

Feststellschraube refers to the screw in front, which I imagine secures the cutting depth once you've adjusted it.
I need the correct terms in English, though, not just my interpretation of it, and can't find any diagrams on the Internet either.

Einschaltsperre refers to the switch near the on/off switch. I'm not sure what it does, and what it's called in English
