Topic tags/keywords: plane restoration tool screw

Are there any off the shelf screws that can replace the original cap iron screw for a Stanley Handyman Plane?

Try eBay. There are always lots of plane bits there.

... Depends on what shelf you look on… My shelf of Stanley parts has several… All from Bailey and Bedrock planes. They all take a 1” modified truss head screw that is .285 diameter with 24 threads per inch. I don’t have a Handyman plane for comparison, but I’d bet it’s the same screw…

Can you measure your plane frog and see if this fits? PM me if this is what you’re looking for!

Thanks for all the replies. I no longer need a replacement screw.

The story is that yesterday I dropped the screw that attaches the chip breaker to the blade and could not find it. This is the short stubby sucker with a big head. I thought I looked everywhere. I moved the tools, I swept, I vacuumed to no avail. I even used a magnet to check all the sweepings.
So after cleaning the shop I gave up and looked on-line. I had the same amount of luck. That led me to post my question.
This afternoon as I was helping the neighbor kid tighten the handlebars on her bike I found the dang thing. It was lying on the floor in plain sight. I probably walked by it 50 times before I found it.

Thanks again for the assistance.
