    Sorry, I only have thumbscrews, not knurled knobs. You could try ebay though.
    I also have a no 52? like spokeshave I don't need you could HAVE. All it needs is a new iron or some chips ground out of the old one.

    That would be great! Super nice of you! I wonder if the iron from my no 51 would fit it? How could i repay you for shipping?
    I have 3 draw shaves now but only the one spoke shave. The one i have works perfectly for removing varnish from new hafts but its a pain to adjust and doesn't stay put if i get aggressive with it.
    Is there any oddball thing you can think of that you need? We could do a swap!

    I can't think of anything I need. I got it for free so I figure I might as well pass it on for the purchase price. We can p.m. about shipping as soon as I figure it out.

    Pics of the aforementioned shave. The blade is probably toast although it appears to be old enough to save just 'cause. The blade width is 2 1/8 inches.

    Both of these items just came in the mail today from the bay. Two different sellers but I have been looking for a box to go with my stanley 75 and I finally gave up searching so I went to the auction site. The 75 is in mint condition and it’s made in England. Now I have two! My other one is US stamped. Then there is the cross peen. I have bought a couple of these now but I saw this stanley and the condition and made in England then the price was very good so I went ahead and got it too! I love the hunt and I am normally more patient with finds specific things I’m looking for but if the price is right and it’s a buy it now then he’ll, why not? Thanks for looking!!!

    PS: you can somewhat see my haul from JB in the back ground, coming soon :)

    If that pitting isn’t too deep when you flatten the back of that iron you might be able to grind them out. Then square it up, put a 23 degree bevel on it and you got it!

    Can any of you Stanley experts shed some light as to the age of this block plane? For $5 I couldn’t walk away from it.

    You will have to wait for a reply from a "Stanley expert", but in the meantime fwiw . . .

    "In 1923 a new line of tools was developed by Stanley. This line was called FOUR – SQUARE and was promoted to the homeowner or to the Do It Yourself market. The tools were first marketed to the user in 1924."

    Looks like a variation of a 60 1/2 depending on the bed angle (angle the iron is set at). I would say it is between 1925 and 1950’s. After that the handyman series came out and was their hobbiest brand instead of the “four square”. It is a “low angle plane”. Which means the bevel is placed up instead of down like a normal bench plane. Because of this the bed angle is more acute than a bevel down plane. If it wasn’t it wouldn’t cut, because of the angle of the cutting edge. Out of block planes bevel up planes are much more desirable.

    Thanks A17! I cleaned it up and sharpened the iron. In the one photo you can see both the temper line and also that there's some high carbon steel left too! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    You can see there's s few nicks left but i got most of em. [​IMG]
    Here you can see both lines. There's life in her yet! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    That "wingnut"? also fits my other no51 shave too which is awesome. Can't thank you enough! If you ever need something A17 give me a yell.

    About 90% of these are Stanley’s. They are not all my shaves but I love them!! They are one of the most versatile tools you can use in woodworking!!

    A few years ago this was in a box of stuff that was given to me:

    A little clean up:

    I checked the Stanley website back then and to my surprise they had a knob and adjuster screw. My memory isn't the best, but I seem to recall the parts (including shipping) was ten or so bucks.

    The #220 is pretty "plain jane" but this little bugger is a solid little workhorse and the Sweetheart iron is, well . . . sweat.
