Topic tags/keywords: block plane parts adjustment lever adjustable mouth stanley replacement refurbished

I was gifted a circa 1907 Stanley 18 low angle block plane. It’s missing the eccentric lever or the mouth adjustment lever. I was wondering if someone could help me track down one of these levers or one like the one in this picture. Stanley has discontinued them as a part to buy on there website, and I can’t find an online source that sells them or an equivalent. I’m looking to make this a working plane so as much as proper vintage part would be nice, an equivalent would be just fine for now. Thank you for any help.

Yep, just went to my shop and checked my Stanley plane parts. Bingo! Not cleaned up yet, but exact match for an early ‘18 throat adjuster. It has the period correct “PAT FEB 20 94” marking. Compared it to my user 18 which is complete and original; identical. I have spares of most any Stanley part in my plane restoration “work kit”

. I often buy broken or rusted planes just for such parts. Like to get it to someone that needs it. Contact me off line and we’ll get it moving!

I think I just saw someone find the needle in the haystack.
