  • Low angle Scewed Stanley Block Plane

    Found this in a little shop outside of Waterloo. Love going into small shops and finding things like this. Its not perfect but I think I can make it work. I will try and find or even make a new blade for it. He had $25 on it but he took $20 for it. Im happy. I don't know if you can see it but it has a couple screws on the front of it that screw into the top no sure what they are for.

    Re: Low angle Scewed Stanley Block Plane

    semi educated guess tells me its skewed rabbet plane posibly with a (missing) side that could be removed
    i belive a replacemnt square blade can be found at leevalley with the grooves, it would have to be reground at the proper angle
    my shop is a beaver lodge

      Here is a picture of my Stanly 140 (not a good example) but it is possible to see the thin metal movable side cheek . It has two rods projecting that fit the holes in the casting and are secured by the two screws. Very careful sharpening of the iron is required to maintain the correct skew angle . The knob is all wood and threaded onto the casting

              Very nice find and at a really great price!
              Here's my example of that plane (missing the removable side plate)
              The LV replacement blade is ground to 70º skew angle and will need to be reworked to 69º in order to work properly according to my research.

                  An easy way to sort the angle of the iron is set it up in the plane with the iron blackened with dye marker pen with it projecting, then scribe the angle off the sole
