« Part 25: Repairing my Stanley #19 Block Plane No.1.. Part 26 of Hand Tool Journey series Part 27: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #1.. What have we got here? »

This morning I checked and the epoxy was cured so I went about cutting off the rod..

Then it was down to lapping the sole. I started with my XCourse DMT to get the rod flat to the sole..

Then I got one of my aluminum sanding bars and using spray adheisive attched some 100 grit sand paper then went to town on the sole till it was flat..

She ain’t pretty but she is smooth and flat. Then some rust preventative (love this stuff!)

And now my #19 is no longer holy :D

I do plan to keep an eye out for a replacement mouth still. This works but I would like to get one that doesn’t have a repair and get the plane back to original condition if I can.

Thanks for looking!

That is my favorite block…aside from a no name block that I own that happens to work better than i feel it should.

Love your machine vise set up.

Good save Eric. Is the mouth piece specific to the 19 or do others fit? NHPlane parts on Ebay is usually a good source for parts.

Thanks Ryan! I need to sharpen this up and give it a go!

Kevin – Yep.. pretty much specific to this plane. It is about 1/4” longer then the mouth on the other adjustable mouth planes Stanley made. I did eventually find a lever cap for a #40 so I have faith I will stumble onto a new mouth at some point.. maybe lol.
