Stanley 4 1/2 Plane

Stanley 4 1/2 Plane

Postby tuna1957 » Sat Oct 16, 2021 6:35 pm

Decided to put this in “work in progress” as it might be a good while until it’s finished. Got inspired by all the wonderful mechanical bits DaveR models. This is a Stanley 4 1/2 Smooth Plane that I own. Pulling measurements off it the best I can with a dial caliper. This thing is giving me quite a headache. My brain is pretty much stuck on “feet and inches” , measuring and working in decimals makes my head hurt :lol: .

Sometimes, what seem like simple objects can bring brainteasers we do not expect, you have done a great job on this, it looks great. Context render?

Thanks Bryan, Thanks Mike. Everyone should hold off on the “great” comments until I get this thing finished ! Might get frustrated and throw it in the trash :lol: . Just doing it for a little change of pace. It will patiently wait in the parts bin. Might get used at some point or it might just take up a little drive space collecting dust. ;)

Got the hold-down screw for the lever cap done. In the process noticed I forgot a couple of casting recesses in the bottom side of the frog ! I suspect there is going to be a lot of going back for things I missed. :lol:
