Hello All

Does anyone have a scrub plane collecting dust in their shop they would part with?
Looking for a stanley, sargent, or lee valley preferably.

Thanks
Mike

I have one, but those planes go for some bucks, like $100-$130.

Which one do you have? Are you selling? A new LV goes for $119. I am looking for a user, not an antique or collectible.
Thanks
Mike

just get a craftsman or stanley smoother and put a camber on the blade and sharpen it. you don’t need an actual “scrub plane”.

I am not sure if you want to do this but I took a #5 bailey and ground the blade to a curve using a quart paint can as a template, 5 minutes on the grinder and a couple minutes honing I was done. I did not bother opening the throat and it works terrific for hogging off stock. This ended up being a $20 scrub plane.

Might be worth a try. Good luck.

I got lucky, got a no-name Stanley clone for $7.50! You don’t see that everyday!

A #4 or 5 with a taper works fine.

You can have mine for $50, it’s a Stanley #40, it needs lots of TLC and comes with some rust, but it is complete. PM me.

Or check Ebay, follow this link.
I just put in a surch for “stanley plane 40”.

Be well,
Pabull.

Have you checked the pawn shops or Craigslist? I got my Stanley Bailey Jointer from the pawn shop for $40.

Thanks everyone. I might outfit a stanley smoother with cambered blade. Seems like a good solution.Cost me nothing at this point.

OK, than I will keep my Stanley #40. I might actually clean it up.

Good luck with your project, Mikd.

Be well, Pb.
