Hi, Lost my thumbscrew to my Stanley 51 Spokeshave.

Is there a place they are available or does anyone know the screw size???

None of my taps seem to fit the hold down plate?

Any help is appreciated!

I think you are out of luck.
Stanley used some odd ball thread sizes, so I think you will need to search Ebay and end up paying the long dollar.

I think I have a broken one you can have the screw off of if I can find it. I assumed it was a 151 but it’s old and made of the more fragile iron.

Hi, Thanks, unbelivably I found it!!!

I knew it was orbiting Pluto, but after looking three times I actually found it!

Made my day, never give up!

Have your say...
