Hi guys,

I give up!

Bought a No 6 hand plane on ebay and it had this small 2 hole black plastic tote on it.

It was screwed in at a weird angle (because of its size) and I knew it was wrong but wasn’t concerned cause I had a proper one (pictured) in my spares box.

I was just intrigued what a small two holed tote would have come off, and have searched Stanley hand tools from pillar to post with no luck. It’s heavy plastic so its relatively knew in Stanley terms.

I thought it mighta come off a rasp or something but nothing there either.

Any lumberjocks out there know what this little fella fits?

Cheers, ozdude.

Probably from a Four Square 5 1/4 plane. Stanley’s handyman line of planes from the ‘60’s.

Thanks guys. Checked out the features on the types of planes you suggested that were selling on ebay and other net sites but none of them seem to have the two fixing holes in their base. Hmmm.

Have your say...
