« Part 25: A "B" Plane restoration Part 26 of Just some planes restored series Part 27: A Rapier Block »

I took a little risk buying this Stanley type 2 # 6. It had some condition issues. The issues included some pitting, one frog screw was broke completely off, and one had half the head broke so using a screw driver wasn’t a possibility. It was also missing the cutter and chip breaker. I will need to look for the correct cutter.
