Hi Everyone

I live in South Africa. Bought a Stanley Sweetheart No 62 around 2014. Recently moved to a new house with a new workshop and discovered my iron(blade) is missing. Look everywhere can’t find it. Probably got lost while moving.

My problem is that I cant find a new A2 iron for this plane especially in South Africa. I tried to order online but was unsuccessful. I read somewhere on the internet that these handplane are off the market and are not making them anymore.??????

I ended up using a Veritas iron. I tried it and did a little grinding on the side of the iron but is not working so well when I tried to adjust when planing.

Any suggestion? I do not want to end up throwing my plane away!

Thks

Leslie

Fabricate your own? Can you buy A2 stock anywhere?

From what I read some time back, the Woodriver replacement blades fit the new Stanley 62s. What I read at the same time was that there aren’t any other replacement blades available for that plane. Not sure if it’s A2 if you are intent on that specific material.

$22.00 U.S. shipping to Canada, so same price as the blade itself:) Guess it is still an option?

I checked Stanleytoolparts and they are out of stock.

try calling Lee Valley tools in Canada, perhaps they can ship a blade for you!

Lee Valley doesn’t have a Blade for the Stanley #62. Wish they did have a PMV-11 version!

Official Stanley part number: https://www.toolservicenet.com/dewalt/en/c//p/P12-142-1

Hock Tools in USA will custom produce blades in O1 steel, if you can’t find any other source for blade.

Ron Hock from Hock tools is a very nice man, I have called the company in the past and surprisingly I was actually talking with him….I am sure he will ship the blade to South Africa.
Now, in what city are you Leslie?

Not so sure, according to his site, blade not offered, and his note sounds like he has little use for this plane:) Please note that these blades do not fit the newer ill-advised Stanley “Sweetheart” planes,

Thks for your help everyone

I am in Johannesbug.

Still no luck.

I am sure I am not the only one sitting with this plane struggling to get part/s. Hope they start making parts again.

MM Tool Parts seems to show them in stock (not showing back ordered like most of the others do anyway) and they have international shipping options.

Andre, How far north are you? You really need to set up a PO box south of the border. :-) Well, after the pandemic is under control anyway.
