i all, I’ve just picked up an old plane on Facebook marketplace and wanting to try and restore it. I thought it was a Stanley (the iron is a Stanley, possibly newer than the plane though) - I’ve went through the online flow chart identifier and it seemed like a type 4, but it has some unique features that don’t support that.
the handle has been snapped off at some point. There doesn’t seem to be a threaded rod or screw for the handle, but it seems to sit inside a recess, dovetail type slot.
The adjustment screw is also not a reverse thread, so you turn anti-clockwise to advance the blade.
Can anyone help identify the maker of the plane? It certainly seems like an old one. Handle is going to be a challenge to replace (I’m a bit of a newbie). Anyone refitted these handles before?
Would love to know more about this if anyone has seen one before.
Discuss hand tools here, its quieter and less dusty than the other sections.
