Topic tags/keywords: plane jointer chisel blade router

Lumberjocks? I do not know what this is exactly. Here is what I know about it (or think I know): It is made in the USA by Stanley, has the numbers 6575 stamped on both sides, it looks like it could handle two types of blades (one on each end. I don’t know what it’s name is or where to get blades, etc. If anyone has information about this item I would like to know about it. I’ve seen some pertty amazing things on this sight, and extreme talent and knowledge; so I’m sure someone will have an answer.

Thank You All,
Hersh

It is a bit guage.
Basically a stop block for a brace and bit.

Don and Dr Dirt,
Thank you for identifying this tool for me. I have not run into it before and knew LJ would come through. I got it at a yard sale last weekend. I bought another Stanley No. 4 for $5.00 and the guy handed me this thing and says, “take this with you too.” I said thanks and thought as I walked to my truck, “what is this thing I just got for free?”

So, Thanks again for your help,
Hersh

I’m glad you didn’t ask me, cause I didn’t have a clue…...But now I know, in case I ever run across one…..

A very useful gadget to have if you do the brace and bit thing. Nice guy!
