I bought my first plane. I bought it from Harry J Epstein in Kansas City, a great shop. The plane is stamped OGONTZ TOOL CO. 13. The blade is a Sandusky. The plane as a whole needs work. Some cracks will need to be filled, the sole flattened, but as a first plane it is very serviceable, and of high quality. The only major issue is that the screw attaching the chipbreaker to the blade is missing. Does anyone know where to get one of these screws, or the size of screw? Could this be fixed another way? Thank you.

You’re probably better off replacing the whole
chipbreaker, but there’s a chance Stanley
chipbreaker screws will fit.
