Got this badboy at a garage sale for $5.00. It was in pretty good shape and didn’t require much work to restore it. The handles are Rosewood. There’s no model numbers but the sole measures 9”x2 3/8” which equals the Stanley Model 4. Defiance was created pre-WWII for the common handyman and the name was derived in “defiance” of the English made planes of it’s day.
Pic#1 is the finished product. #2 is sanded and wirebrushed. #3 is as it was purchased.
One thing for certain is, it really works REALLY well! Definately a welcome tool to my little shop.
