I have what I think is a Stanley 36. I has a 2 3/8 plane iron. Does that sound correct? The cap lever has small bumps all over the top. Looks manufactured that way. Anyone know where one could get a iron for it?

Thanks, Kelly

A #36 is a transitional right? According to the 2 3/8” is correct

as said, if you’re going to use it, hock tools is hard to beat.

You do need to be aware that the depth adjuster hole on a transitional cap iron is not in the same place as those on the iron planes. If you get a iron/cap iron set that was designed for an iron plane, you’ll have to modify the cap iron to work.
