I have two small planes that I need some help identifying

The first one is an old Block Plane that I found in an old tool shed at a friends house. Its in really rough shape and both the top of the plane and bottom sole are broke and missing the metal. Also has no blade and may be missing other parts. I am sure it is probably just junk and not worth spending any time on but I was just curious if anyone could ID it. I may decide to clean it up just for display purpose. I doubt it can ever be back to working condition with the bottom broke like it is.

The 2nd plane is a Stanley Bull Nose plane. This one was my dads. I don’t recall seeing one of these from Stanley before. This plane is still in great shape and only needs some minor cleaning. I would also like to know where I can get a replacement blade for this one because this is a plane I use a lot.

#1 looks like a Stanley(or knockoff) of a #220. Second is a #75, again either stanley or knockoff version.

Thanks, I did a search and the 2nd plane is a #75 Stanley. Now that I know what it is I have to find somewhere that sells a replacement blade for this plane.

That block plane has an adjustable mouth, so it is not a 220. I believe it is a 9-1/2 or a knockoff of one. Throw it in a bucket of evaporust. Then sell it for parts on ebay. It will sell. Not for a huge amount, but probably enough to cover the cost of another blade on the 75.

The Bullnose plane is pretty common. I see them on ebay a lot. They are handy and work pretty well. Don’t get carried away with flattening the bullnose. The nose is needs to be parallel to the sole, but not even with it.

Joe- I actually use the bull nose plane all the time. I think it works great for cleaning up rabbits and things on small boards.

The first one appears to be a 9 1/2. The chunk missing at back use to hold the blade adjustment wheel. I would do like swirt said, list it on ebay, some of us buy things like that !!!!!!!!!!!!
The second is a #75 bullnose. I use mine a lot. Yours looks like it has lots of blade left for your lifetime ! Just keep putting edge back on, no need to Grind away.
(Please don’t let me hear you say THROW old tools away)

Canadianchips- I will probably sell the damaged one, I suppose I should still clean it up first so that I can maybe get a few extra dollars…

Yeah clean it up so people can see what each part is.. Take good photos of the parts separated out. You may even be able to do better selling the individual pieces, though that is more hassle for you.
