I bought one of these and never got it to work well. I would be interested in hearing anything you find out about this as well. Good luck.

What are you trying to do with it? I do not belive there is much you can do beyond sharpening the blade and adjusting the mouth.

Some info from the web

I got a Stanley #55 that was my grandads recently. He bought it to do his cabinet doors but never used it. It is brand new in the box with the paperwork and reciept.

I went looking for info on using it online but didn’t come up with much. Searching is not one of my strong points though….could be that complete lack of patience

The adjustable nose on the plane sits lower than the sole. I thought I read somewhere that that is the way it is supposed to be. I bought this to clean up rabbets and tenons but I don’t know how to set it up. I know there are better options out there but fo 20 bucks I thought I would give the #75 a try.

IMO it is more of a carpentry tool than a woodworking tool. Useful for getting to tight spaces. I’m sure it has a place in your tool box, but probably not the best choice for rabbets and tenons.
