They were a ball of rust and no name. I ground the sides of the plane 90 deg. to the sole. The sides was cast but not ground flat. The blade came bevel up. This blade does not fit if bevel down. I made a part to fit under the wheel so it sets even on the blade. Is this the blade that the plane was sold with? The plane was in a bunch of planes and parts could have got changed around.
Thanks

yours is a block plane—the blade is installed with the bevel up (unlike a bench plane)

The block plane is some copy of a Stanley 110. The Stanley planes had the name and model cast around the knob but there were other companies that made the same plane and sold them with no identifying markings. Could be Millers Falls, Sargent, Winchester or others. I know the Millers Falls had the blade marked but not sure about any others.

I don’t know about the bevel square. Looks like a Stanley but most of theirs had their name on them somewhere.

On my Stanley 110 the blade adjusting wheel is at the very back and moves the blade via a lever that engages notches in the underside of the blade. So there is no confusion about which way the bevel goes.

That’s not a 110 Phil. The 110 didn’t have any depth or lateral adjustment mechanisms and had a smooth back side on the blade. The blade is set with a hammer. You probably have a 120 which is the same plane but with a screw-type depth adjuster.

Maybe one of the Sargent made for a hardware store?

The bevel gauge doesn’t look like Stanly to me. Kind of looks like a Southington I have but the knurling is totally different, and haven’t seen one with that brass washer.

The Stanley/eureka bevel gauges have oval (or logo)shaped recesses in the knurling, so do some other brands. This is the first brand i have seen that has the knurling all the way up and down the body.
