    First time checking this flea market and I think I struck gold. Missing the lateral adjustment lever. I understand these are mostly interchangeable on Stanley planes? I have my work cut out for me but for $40, I am soooooo happy with this. I've never restored a plane before, so advice would be welcome. 20190602_173840.jpg 20190602_173907.jpg 20190602_173856.jpg 20190602_173907.jpg 20190602_173912.jpg 20190602_173920.jpg

    It's a real mess. Looks like original rivet for the adjustment lever is still there. Lever must have broke off. I've read that it's easy to break the frog while installing a new lever but as long as I don't hit the actual frog with the hammer, it'll be fine? Paint is chipping away from top of the sole. I know it might be blasphemy but I'm planning on stripping the paint and going with a hand hammered black paint. The blade is warped a little, about half way between the back and the blade. Not sure what to do about that. Just get a new one? Anyway, here's pictures of that process, so I don't forget where stuff goes in reassembly. 20190602_205526.jpg 20190602_205534.jpg 20190602_205741.jpg 20190602_205854.jpg 20190602_205946.jpg 20190602_210351.jpg 20190602_210358.jpg 20190602_210544.jpg

    Could be this one,but it's hard to lock down a type without that darn lever. Screenshot_20190602-214349_Chrome.jpg

    When a plane gets to this point, I’m in the strip it and repaint club.

    Those are production numbers. They don’t mean anything to us mere mortals

    Cleaned up the body and stripped the paint. Took two 24 hour runs to get it to this point. 20190610_190553.jpg 20190613_174810.jpg

    Will a chunk of quartz coutertop work as a flat surface for sanding down the sole and sides? It's good enough for sharpening my tools, so maybe?

    I would think so, but if you can get a hold of some glass, that would be better.
    I had found a few pieces on craigslist, old thick glass shelving. I wish I could send ya a piece. But I highly doubt it would survive the trip.

    The base of the table is the glass you want to keep.

    First step is admitting I have a problem... Big one is a type 6 no 7. Very rusty and rear grip is broken off on top and missing the brass screw. Others are a type 16 no 4 on bottom. Top is type 19 no 5. No 5 needs some work but would cut as is. No 4 needs a bit more as the handle is cracked. OK, I'm definitely an addict. 20190614_194753.jpg 20190614_194806.jpg And I stayed soaking the no 8 parts in today remover. 20190614_115752.jpg

    They didn't get back to me. I'm gonna look for another source but all else failing, I'll use a quartz slab. It's very flat.
