  • Plane cleanup with a sad ending, Stanley 220

    Hello all, I am a lurker here who had the good luck to have a Stanley 220.
    A friend at work gave this to me and said it was his Dads and they would never use it. It looked like it had not been miss used bit just neglected if you know what I mean.
    I soaked it in citric acid and it came back to life.
    In the process the little leaver to tighten down on the blade broke off, it must have been broken and hanging on a atom or two and when I brushed it with a tooth brush to clean it it fell off. So maybe some miss use after all.
    I re soaked the piece again to get some more gunk out of the grid texture and that was when things went wrong, would have broke anyways.
    Despite this the blade looks good and the bottom is not scratched and the mouth is tight. I guess I could use it as is but would like to get even just the little lever and I could fit it to the pin.
    Any chance of knowing somebody that would sell/trade me the piece?
    Cheers Ron. I live in Winnipeg if that helps.

    Try giving Stanley a call. If you look through the oldtools mailing list, you will see the phone number for an employee named Laurie (sp?) I think.

    Might have to buy a whole new lever cap, but others have had good success and relatively low prices for replacement parts.

        I guess I could try a repair, got nothing to loose. I thought about making another one, but more work than buying one.
        If not I will call Stanley, thank you for your help.
        Cheers Ron.

          Thanks for the idea, still try a repair but the replacement is plan "B".
          Cheers Ron.

            "Any chance of knowing somebody that would sell/trade me the piece?"

            I don't have your missing piece, but I have two sources for parts who have proven very reliable.

            Pete Niederberger- PNiederber@aol.com and Eric Robinson at New Hampshire Plane Parts- eric@nail1.com.

            My suggestion is to order a new lever cap.

            Good luck with the rehab.

              The No. 220 was a fairly inexpensive plane. There should be lots out there. You can still make it work by using a screw driver to tighten up the screw holding the cap once you have the plane assembled. You have to have a screwdriver handy any time you want to take it apart for sharpening or whatever, but it will work that way until you come across a new cap.

                At a cost of $1, I'd make replacement plan "A".

                  I have two 220. Both are missing the blade adjustment mechanism. I'll gladly give you one of the caps. No cost! If you're interested pm me.
