Hi, Wondering if anyone is making handles for these planes.

May need a couple and have to many projects already to get into another.

I’m not sure what his prices are like, but http://hardwarecitytools.com/index.html specializes in replacement knobs and totes.

Seems the Wayback Machine has these PDF files stored from back in December 2018. :-)

Found this for a Stanley #4

Stanley 3 and 4

Check Etsy

And E Bay

Cheaper than the makers prices, and if you know your type, you may be able to match, if that is important.

I have one from a #7… Similar size? I dunno… But, I’ll offer it up for cheap.

I made a new tote to fit my hand. My #7 is a user, not a collector and I have no need for the old one.

Hi, Thanks, but that won’t work for a #4.

The handle from #5 and up has the screw at the foot that the lower numbers don’t have.

Thanks again!

First tote I made for a beat up Sweetheart #3 I bought at a antique shop in Jerome, AZ, I don’t know the wood species:

Some of my newer work. Takes about an hour these days to make a nice tote:

here’s a #3/4 in rosewood:
