Don W, that looks like a good resource!
I don’t even know if I am looking for just Stanley’s. I am wanting to use more hand tools and I feel like I would have a greater respect for the craft if I fixed up my own. I have just noticed that everyone seems to fix Stanley’s. Is it that they were the best in the early 1900s? Or is it rhythm parts are more readily available?
I want to use the planes I fix, but I would also like to have them be “correct” pieces. I will still use this one, I would just like to stay away from frankenplanes (nice word “the dude”!) if I am going to go restore crazy on one.
