I might have 1 or 2 Stanley blocks I could put together. Bought with the intention of refurbishing and never got around to it. I ll take a look tomorrow to make sure it s all there. If you re interested they re all yours.

Edit: Relieve the edges of the iron if you haven t already.

Thanks for the offer Fridge. If I can get this one working I may add a few others.

Many years ago I had the opportunity to inherent all of my grandfathers tools. I took a few things but at the time I didn’t really know what a hand plane was even for, so I passed on them. About 15 pre-war (based on my grandfather’s age) Stanley’s. Oh the silly things we do when we are young! I know they were Stanley’s because his last name happened to be Stanley. He never had to carve his name into them!
