I have a Siegley plane, #7 sized. I figure it is from the time that Stanley owned Siegley. Mine is also a STS - meaning it has a tapered blade. I'm giving it some minor cleanup and a sharpening. I have a question about the blade. There is pitting right at the cutting edge - and I'm wondering what the best course of action would be. I don't relish the thought of grinding off nearly 1/4 of blade. Outside of grinding off that much, I'm guessing it's time to seek out a replacement blade. I don't imagine that I'm going to find another tapered blade for it, so I'm guessing I can use a regular blade in it? If so, what would be a good replacement? Buy a Hock? Or anyone have a good 2 3/8" wide blade of some sort laying around?
