I have looking for a jointer plane for a while.
Today I bought a craftsman 22" jointer plane.
It looks like it has never been used and/or sharpen.
It has a corrugated sole.
I spent the day cleaning it and sharpening the blade.
It works like a charm ( at least for me)
I was wondering if someone knows who made it.
Was it made by Sargent?
The only mark on it except for craftsman is on the side :7Cbb
Thank you.

there's a post about how to do it. all you need is an account at photobucket what you do is load the pic/pics on your computer from the camera then open you acc. at photobucket and go to upload pics and upload the pics you want then under the pic in photobucket there will be four boxes the second box you right click and copy then you come to LJ and where you post words you right click and press paste then your pics should load in your post. If you look where it sayes "pictures & videos friendly" this is where you can view the complete instuctions on how to do it. Good Luck!

The craftsman planes I have are made by sargent for craftsman. The 22 inch is equivalent to Stanley #7. My number 7 is corrugated and it works easier than flat. You will enjoy it when you get it "tuned"

Canadianchips, I spent the afternoon tuning and cleaning the plane.
In fact I had very little to do.
The plane is in excellent shape
I just filed and sanded smooth the frock surfaces, flattened the sole which was not bad at all and "scary" sharpened and polished the blade to 8000 grit.
It cuts like charm

I hope you enjoy your new find! I own a number of Stanley planes (some are duplicates) and one Craftsman scrub plane. Even though I have gone through the process of tuning up all my planes, honing the blades, etc., the Craftsman is still my favorite. It feels different in my hands. Not sure if it actually is lighter (never weighed them) or proportioned slightly different (never measured them either!)

I suspect that it may be because my Grandfather bought me that plane so many years ago (I was 5, I believe) and taught me how to use it. He believed that if I learned to use a plane correctly, woodworking would otherwise come easily to me.

I believe he was correct.

And my two grown sons are further proof!

There is nothing like a well tuned plane and a block of wood.

I just came across the same 22" craftsman plane in a used tool store ($13.00). It is on great shape little rust. Too good and cheap to walk away. Particularly after buying a few Stanley # 7's. I am in process of cleaning and restoring. I think it will be a nice rare piece for use or display.? Not sure how much it is worth though? Can't find any on on line bidding sites. I'm excited about how it will clean up and plane once sharpened?
Does anyone know if craftsman up the same type of japanning process. ??

This is my first blog as I have just joined up! Looking for info on the Craftsman 22" plane.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
