I have some questions about planes. I have quite a few planes that were my fathers. My father was a woodworking craftsman, but it has been nearly eighty years since he worked daily with his tools. The last twenty five years of his life he supervised production in a large custom millwork and commercial furnishings business. I have been a machine oriented woodworker, so these planes have been resting for a long time. For those of you with a strong interest in hand tools I am listing the planes that I have in my shop. I am looking forward to putting these fine tools to work on my future projects. I know some of these planes are somewhat out of the ordinary, but for the craftsmen of my fathers day they raised the level of quality that could be achieved.
Stanley planes Numbers; 5, 40, 45, 71, 78, 80, 98, 99, 203
Question #1 Does any one have any information on the company that manufactured the SARGENT plane?
Question #2 Could someone post a picture of a STANLEY 203 plane? Mine is broken and has been from before my time. I would like to see what is missing from it. It still works fine.
Thanks for reading and thanks for any help.
