Topic tags/keywords: stanley plane refurbishing

So remember that Stanley 602 type 3 that I got? It has been 9 months and I still have had no luck with finding the few missing pieces to it. Basically, it needs a new blade, as the one it had when I found it working at the Habitat for Humanity was a no. 3 blade, which appears to be why the lateral is a little loose and has scratches on the little round nib that adjusts. It needs a 3 line type 3 Bedrock lever cap, and finally it needs a blade and chipbreaker. I do have the original chipbreaker, which was bent when I found it, I bent it back straight by bearing against it in a vise, but there is still cupping in the steel, I’m starting to think that the reason why the chipbreaker was bent to begin with is someone hit it with a hammer. I won’t toss out the original chipbreaker, but it no longer engages with the depth adjuster because of that bent depression in it, so I will archive and label it with all my other worn out and damaged original parts so I still technically have the (almost) complete original plane. The blade and cap iron is basically taken care of, as I have found a few on ebay, but I still have had zero luck with a 3 line no 2 lever cap, anyone have one or know who might have one? I’m also wondering if I should find a replacement lateral adjuster in the event that the original lateral ever comes off, as I have heard that loose/wobbly laterals will eventually work their way off.

Contact Patrick Leach and ask about the parts you need. He sees as many vintage plane parts as anyone in the country. Just expect to pay for them. 602’s are hard to find and parts even harder. Leach had a 602 lever cap sometime last year and if I remember correctly, was asking $400 for it.

Dang, that’s pretty pricey. I guess it’s only fair considering I only paid 5 dollars for it :D I’m in no rush to get it back to work any time soon, I’ve been picking black gunk out of threads for the past 3 days.
