A quick shout out to all the members here, how ya’ll R ! My first post and it would naturally have to include a call out for help ! I purchased a pretty good Stanley 62 and I am trying to locate an eccentric ring for the adjustable mouth. If there is one out there for sale,,,shoot me a message. If someone could make a template drawing of theirs that would work as well as I could fabricate one myself. Getting ready for work so I’ll cut this short and get back later in the post and tell a little history of myself and talk tools. Here is a picture of what I’ve got myself into over the past 3 months. Where can this lead ?.?!!

Do you know if it the same one as the 60 1/2? I have a 60 1/2 w/ a cracked casting that I’d part out.

I am 99.999% sure those are not the same part

Your best bet is nhplaneparts—an eb*y seller of stanley parts whose real name is Eric.

Thanks,I’ve looked thru NHplaneparts and haven’t seen anything. Bondo, the 62 is a small jack smoother I think my best option @ this point is to fab one for the time being and find one if it might come available in the future. If someone could take theirs and trace it out on thin cardboard then I would make one out of brass sheet.

What that seller has posted at any time is but a part of his inventory—you want to contact him via the site and ask—worst case scenario, he puts you on a list and keeps an eye out for the right part.

Patrich Leach says that eccentric lever is unique to the 62.

Sorry I don’t have one, but contacting nhplaneparts and asking if he has one or can put you on his list to keep a lookout would be a good bet.

Well you’ve found quite the group of enablers for your rust addiction. Most of the action here happens on some of the main threads. The one for hand planes I think you found, and there’s one for saws, mitre boxes, manual drills, combination planes and more

I’m still working my way thru all the sight has to offer. I googled the #62 images and found a couple photos with a pic of the plane seperated into parts. With that I made a thin cardboard template and tested. I’m happy enough with the results to leave it at that till I find a replacement and now on to a cleanup. Here are a couple shots of what come of an ole roll up door hinge.


If I did it over I would make it another 3/16 in dia, ,I made it to hide when centered under the brass ring but not as wide as the base ring casting. When I come up on some scrap brass sheet that’s thick enough I’ll make another and it will look better with the original brass threaded washer. Jeff
