Topic tags/keywords: question plane

Hey Everyone,
So recently I have been looking for new blades for my smaller planes such as my Stanley pre-lateral no 3 or the bedrock 602 I have been cleaning. I looked at woodcraft, neither WoodRiver or Pinnacle blades make them in the size for No 1’s or 2’s. Can a Lie Nielsen blade fit a No. 1 or No. 2?

They only go down to No. 3, which I guess takes care of the no 3 but not the 602.

You might want to ask, they have been making blades for years and may have old stock, etc.

Hock blades are wonderful but are a little thicker. Sometimes this requires opening the mouth a little bit. I don’t think you want to do that to a 602, but maybe I’m wrong.

Contact Hock blades. He may even make you some reasonable. Doesn’t cost to ask.

It wouldn’t hurt to try, if I can’t get it to fit the 602 I will just find a new old stock blade. Not worth opening the mouth on a 602!

nhplaneparts.com on FeeBay. Eric has a “store” there that sells nothing but plane parts.

If you can’t find a replacement blade, make your own. Just go to an industrial supply house like McMaster Carr or MSC and get precision ground stock, either oil hardening or water hardening. You can find it in the thickness and width you need. It’s just a matter of cutting it to length and grinding a bevel; then heat treating and sharpening. Sounds like a lot of work, but really it isn’t that tough.

Have your say...
